Description

VAT bannerBladder weakness is much more common than most people think, but there is something that you can do to help.

Did you know that around one in three women will suffer from some form of incontinence at some point in their lives? Contiform (formally known as IncoFree) will help you to regain control of your bladder and take control of your life. Contiform pessary is a soft vaginal pessary which works by applying gentle pressure on your urethra to stop those embarrassing leaks, even during exercise.

Contiform can be worn all day, every day if required, or can be just worn during exercise if this is when you find you have problems. The starter pack is the ideal place to start if you're not sure what size is best for you. This handy pack includes everything you need to get started, including one of each size of pessary, a removal ribbon and instructions for use.

By wearing Contiform, you can free yourself from wearing pads and liners and deal with bladder weakness in a discreet and comfortable way. It also works in conjunction with conventional pelvic floor exercises to make them more effective and improve your muscle tone in the long-term.

To try for size, select the Contiform in the Medium size first. The Medium size is clearly marked with an 'M'. Once inserted, you should feel comfortable and you should not be experiencing urine leakage. If you do not feel comfortable or have difficulties emptying your bladder, whilst wearing medium sized Contiform, remove it and try the Small size, marked 'S'. Alternatively, try the Large size, if you find that you are still leaking, when fitted with the Medium size.


ContiformFrequently Asked Questions about Contiform (IncoFree)

Can Contiform be used with an IUD inserted? - No - this is because there's a risk the coil could be displaced when the Contiform is removed. The risk of this is reduced is the threads of the coil are shorter, but check with your Family Planning doctor before using 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 lubricate before insertion? - No, simply moisten the device with water before insertion.

Can you have intercourse while wearing Contiform? - No.


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

  • You are pregnant
  • You have an IUD (Coil)
  • You have any form of prolapse
  • During intercourse
  • Within 2 months of having a baby
  • If you have a vaginal or bladder infection or vaginal soreness

Contiform is a CE Approved, Class 2a Medical Device.


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.

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.  

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 Contiform pessary for you:.
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”.

Not quite right Review by Erin
Product Rating
Contiform definitely worked for me, however, unfortunately even the smallest size was too large which meant that as well as stopping any leaks it also made it impossible for me to go to the loo while wearing it as it completely stopped the flow (it says in the instructions that if this happens you need to go down to the next size, unfortunately I was already using the smallest).

I think that the ribbon that can be used for removal is worrying insubstantial and it's in a very inaccessible place if it does happen to break, however, if the product had been useable I would have risked this.

I felt really disappointed that it wasn't available in smaller sizes as it's obviously an effective product. An expensive mistake. (Posted on 2 August 2013)

Far too large! Review by Bag Lady
Product Rating
This type of pessary works well for exercising. I have used a tampon when running, which has really completely stops leakage. I ordered this product hoping to replace tampon use with something reusable, but I was surprised at just how large even the small size contiform is. It is far too large, so much larger than a super plus tampon, so I will not be using it. If it were available in an even smaller size I would consider it.

Dear Bag Lady, I am sorry the Contiform Pessary isn't the right fit for you. Did you purchase the Contiform Pessary Starter Pack which contains all three sizes? We recommend always buying the Contiform Pessary Starter Pack to get the correct size for your vaginal pessary. It is vital that you get the sizing of a pessary right to ensure it does the job properly when you exercise. Please let us know if you haven't tried the other sizes in this range and we'll do our best to help you, Contiform is an excellent product and many women get a great deal of support (literally) and relief from bladder leaks when it is correctly sized.
Here to help - please contact us - we want you to be happy!

It worked but is cracked/perished on inside after just one day! Review by Maryru
Product Rating
The starter pack was recommended to me by my physiotherapist. As instructed I tried inserting the middle sized one numerous times, however it didn't feel at all right. The following day yesterday was my first time trying small size and it fitted snugly and comfortably. Worked a treat, and only felt it when using toilet. However, on removing to wash and store for the night, I found that the inside has a crack. I feel this is very unsatisfactory, firstly having to buy three sizes which is quite costly, and secondly only lasting a day. Am I correct in thinking that this would not be hygienic to use again. I use Mooncup for menstruation and it has lasted years without cracking, perhaps the materials used are not flexible enough. Please advise me what I should do to either get a replacement if this is a faulty product or a refund if this is a regular occurrence.

Dear Maryru
You did not leave an e mail address so I am sorry that I unable to contact you directly to address your concerns. Thank you for contacting us. Contiform has been manufactured with a slit on the inside of the collar. The slit will appear when you first fold the device, this does not affect the efficacy of Contiform. It has been manufactured like this so that you can fold it easily for insertion and also to minimise the risk of urine retention. It is perfectly safe to use and there are no hygiene issue as long as you wash it with unperfumed soap and rinse it well with water each time you remove it. Depending on the frequency of use, the slit will gradually lengthen until it reaches over the top of the collar. This is an indication the device needs to be replaced. Contiform guarantee that the device will last a minimum of 30 days when used daily. Contiform is CE Certificated, and an approved product supplied to the NHS. This information is clearly stated in the Instruction for use leaflet that comes with the starter packs and replacement units but you might have missed seeing it when you received your Contiform pessary. I hope this will be helpful. If you want to speak to someone directly at Contiform they have stated that they are happy to talk with you to reassure you that it is perfectly safe. If you'd like to forward me your telephone number I can arrange for this.
Assuring you of our best attention at all times

Expensive and doesn't work Review by Oops
Product Rating
Really disappointed in this product after spending so much. I bought the starter kit but the smallest size is really very big and difficult to insert. When inserted fully it's uncomfortable & more importantly didn't improve incontinence when running. For me it simply doesn't work. The incostress works but the device is heavy and can become dislodged during running so I wouldn't use in public.

Dear Oops
Thank you for your review, I am sorry that the Contiform Pessary has not helped you and didn't work for you. I would urge you to keep trying another product - pessary use and fitting can be difficult, but the 'trial and error' is often worth it when you find the right one.
We have just taken on a new German range called Contam Vaginal Pessary. This is initially soaked in water and it becomes soft and pliable but remarkably supportive. We have a number we can make available as samples so if you would like to try one with our complements please contact me personally.

Leak free classes! Yipee! Review by Zumba Zoe
Product Rating
Recommended to me by a friend in Australia, these are great! I thoughts the small was OK, but when I tried the Med I knew this was better because it stopped all leaks at my Zumba class - well mine anyway!. That is a real first. Now, whilst I am doing my kegel exercises and all the other things to get said pelvic floor back into some kind of pre-baby shape - this little gadget is an absolute revelation. No longer will I have to plug with 2 super tampons, then suffer with the dryness this causes!
Highly recommended, I'm a convert. (Posted on 17 July 2013)

Small works for me Review by Aaminah K
Product Rating
I tried this along with my Kegel8 after suffering a prolapse following the birth of my daughter. It works well when I am exercising and it is comfortable to wear. It stops the leaks. I firstly tried the medium and have settled on the small - this seems to be the best for me.
Easy to use - it sort of folds into shape for insertion, and it is amazing that a little thing like this can stop the treadmill leaks! Sad that I have a large style that is totally unused - maybe it might be an idea to buy single ones individually - can't imagine selling it on eBay! (Posted on 19 July 2013)

it works but the product doesn't last long. Review by Welsh Lady
Product Rating
It took me a few goes to find the best position to insert and remove the product, it works but after using it 3 times it started to crack on the inside.

Dear Welsh Lady
Thank you for your feedback. Please note that the Contiform Vaginal Pessary is designed with a crease in it, to make insertion a lot easier. So it is 'folded' for insertion, then it expands into position to do it's supporting. A Contiform should last you at least 30 days if you use it daily so please if you feel that this is possibly a manufacturing fault and it has not lasted as it should (which it seems is the case) do please contact me personally and I shall arrange for a replacement Contiform pessary to be sent to you.
Both StressNoMore and Contiform want you to be delighted with your purchase so please get in touch.

Fantastic Product Review by KateBoo
Product Rating
Contiform works. I have been using Contiform for some time as I know it will stop any embarrassing leaks. I have seen the comments about the slit, I have not found this to be a problem. The replacement unit lasts me two months. I go running twice a week and also go to the gym once or twice a week. I use Contiform every time I run or exercise and also if I am out shopping. It is a great product - I am so pleased I found it. (Posted on 6 February 2014)

Great but recent purchase split sooner than usual Review by Keen runner
Product Rating
Fantastic product I would not be without, however using 1-2 times per week for exercise class usually meant product would last a year or more. Most recent purchase splitting after only 4 or 5 uses so not sure if materials have changed. (Posted on 21 January 2014)

Do you ship to the USA and what is the cost of product and shipping in US dollars? Thanks.

I am looking for a solution to my bladder leaking. I had a hysterectomy about 15 years ago and understand that a pesser doesn't always work well without a uterus. I have been considering the Contiform for some time. I live in the USA and was wondering if you have a distributor in this country? What is the approximate monthly cost in US dollars and the shipping as well? I sure hope you can find them here. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Karen Rogers. [email protected]

I would like to use the contiform when I exercise but I have a cystocele. I am not incontinent but just find exercising uncomfortable. I do pelvic floor exercises but I need more support. The doctor fitted me with a pessary ring but I found it affected my married life. I can't have surgery so am a bit at a loss as to what to do. I don't want to pay out £74.99 for something that I can't use. Would the contiform help me?
Please advise
