VAT bannerBladder weakness is more common than most people think!

About one in three women will suffer from some form of incontinence at some point in their life. Contiform, formerly known as IncoFree,is an easy and comfortable way to help take control of your bladder and free yourself from embarrassing bladder leaks. Not only that, but Contiform also works together with conventional pelvic floor exercisers to make them more effective at improving pelvic muscle tone.

Contiform is a soft vaginal insert which gently contours to your body giving you a gentle, comfortable fit. It can be worn all day every day if you like or just when you’re exercising.

If you purchase your Contiform individually sized, whether you purchase the small, medium or large, your Contiform will come with the removal ribbon and full user guide.

For a little guidance, if you wear the medium sized Contiform pessary and find you still leak you need to change to the larger sized pessary. However, if when wearing the medium sized Contiform pessary you find it uncomfortable or you are unable to empty your bladder, you need to change to the smaller sized pessary.

If you are unsure as to where to begin, why not try our starter pack? It comes with all you need to ensure you get Contiform working for you; 1 small sized Contiform pessary, 1 medium sized Contiform pessary and 1 large sized Contiform pessary. This gives you the freedom to try all three sizes to see which suits you the best. In addition, the starter pack also comes with the required removal ribbon, full user guide and instructional DVD.


ContiformSo Why Contiform (IncoFree)?

Contiform is a revolutionary vaginal pessary for incontinence and bladder weakness that is worn discreetly and comfortably inside your vagina.

Contiform stops accidental wetness by supporting your urethra and restoring your body's natural anatomy.

Contiform also gently 'exercises' your pelvic floor muscles, and when worn in conjunction with doing kegel exercises (pelvic floor exercises) it can bring about long-term improvement in muscle tone.

Frequently Asked Questions about Contiform (IncoFree)

Can Contiform be used with a IUD inserted? - No - removing the Contiform could displace the coil if the threads become caught. This could be prevented if the threads are short, but check with your doctor before you use Contiform.

Do I need to remove Contiform when going to the toilet? - No.

Can the device be used while menstruating? - Yes

Do you need to use a lubricate before insertion? - No. Moisten the device with water before insertion.

Can you have intercourse with the device in? - No

When do I know it is time to replace? - The device will develop a fracture inside.

How do I clean Contiform? - Wash with warm water and unperfumed soap and rinse well before the first and subsequent uses.

Do I have to use the removal ribbon? - No. But it will make the removal easier similar to removing a tampon.


You shouldn't use Contiform (or IncoFree) if:

  • You are pregnant
  • You have an IUD (Coil)
  • You have moderate or severe prolapse- if you can keep a tampon in, you can use and benefit from the Contirom device
  • During intercourse
  • Within 2 months of having a baby
  • If you have a vaginal or bladder infection or vaginal soreness

 

How common is stress urinary incontinence (SUI)?
It is estimated that up to 1 in 3 women today suffer to some degree with
stress incontinence. This can affect women of all ages and may occur at any time, but often starts in pregnancy, after childbirth, or during menopause.

What causes stress urinary incontinence?
Stress incontinence is caused by weakness in the pelvic floor muscles which allows leakage during ordinary, everyday activities such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, lifting, or when you are most active.

Who can use Contiform vaginal pessary?
Any woman who has stress incontinence. Women who decline surgery or are not suitable for surgery can use the contiform device. Women who want more children or are waiting for surgery can also benefit from contiform.

Contiform is unsuitable for moderate to severe prolapse - but if you can keep in a normal tampon, then Cpontam will work for you!

When do I use Contiform and how long does it last?
You can wear Contiform all day, or use it only when you are exercising

With everyday use Contiform will last up to 30 days. If used only 2 or 3 times a week the device will last more than 30 days.

How does Contiform work?
Contiform is an intravaginal device shaped like a hollow tampon. Made of medical grade Santaprene.

How does Contiform work?

  • Contiform is an intravaginal device shaped like a hollow tampon. Made of medical grade Santaprene.  
  • Contiform can be easily inserted and removed by a user, in much the same way you would insert and remove a tampon.
  • Contiform is softly contoured to be worn discreetly and comfortably inside the vagina to support the urethra and restore your body’s natural anatomy


Choosing the correct size.
Initially try the medium size. Ensure the front of the device rests behind the pubic bone and the back of the device sits under/behind the cervix.

Cough, jump or run to check for any leakage and movement. If there is still leakage or movement you will need to fit a large size. Some women prefer to try Contiform in the privacy of their home. Consequently, we recommend that they consult their Healthcare Profession
al, Nurse Continence Advisor before using Contiform
.
How do I know when to replace?
The contiform device is manufactured with a slit in the inside of the collar. This is to aid the folding and squeezing prior to insertion. The slit also acts as a gauge as to when the device should be replaced. Over 30 days the slit will develop over the top of the collar which compromises the efficacy. This is when the device should be replaced.

How do I clean Contiform?
Wash with warm water and unperfumed soap and rinse well before the first and subsequent uses.

Do I have to use the contiform device removal ribbon?
No. But it will make the removal easier similar to removing a tampon.

Can Contiform be used if the patient has prolapse?
If the patient can retain a tampon, then the Contiform MAY help in the prevention of stress urinary incontinence”.

“The device is not designed to elevate prolapse (i.e., patients with prolapse usually cannot retain a tampon) “ Reference: Clinical Paper Update:the Contiform” intravaginal device in four sizes for the treatment of stress incontinence W.A.Allen et al Int Urogynecol J (3008) 19:757-761

Why does the Contiform have a split inside the collar?
To avoid any possibility of obstruction to the urinary flow rate, Contiform
dies were improved to create an inherent weakness in the anterior ring (the collar) of the device. This allows Contiform to be more easily folded for insertion into the vagina, and reduces any excess pressure on the bladder neck which could affect the flow rate.

 “.....Contiform does not have a significant obstructive effect, although three (3) individuals noted a significant reduction in the flow rate when using a new device – after approximately 48 hrs a softening of the device was noted and flow appeared to normalize thereafter”.

Reference: Clinical Paper  The Contiform Incontinence Device efficacy and patient acceptability . A.R. Morris;K.H. Moore Int Urogynecol J (2003) 14: 412 417.

Which market segment is the most influential in advising patients with Stress Urinary Incontinence?
Contiform is supported by professional health ancillary groups that advocate Pelvic Floor exercises and the use of Contiform for the treatment and prevention of stress incontinence.

 “We suspect that the applicability of the device (Contiform), would be greater in the primary care setting i.e., NCA or Physiotherapy Departments”.
Reference: Clinical Paper Update: the Contiform” intravaginal device in four sizes for the treatment of stress incontinence W.A.Allen et al Int Urogynecol J (3008) 19:757 761

How effective is Contiform in reducing stress incontinence?
“Contiform appears simple to use and is well tolerated. The device offers an alternative to surgery, particularly in those who not only leak during sport, or those who do not wish, or have not yet completed their family. It provides a significant reduction of leakage in those moderate to severe incontinence.......”

 “ When comparing the cure rate of Contiform with other devices, the success of Contiform is similar to that of the Introl device (52% continent on the 1 hr pad test) Superior to that of Conven Continence Guard (41- 46% dry on the 24hr pad) and similar to Femassist (25 - 49% dry on the 24hr pad)
