If you suffer with a 3rd degree prolapse or procidentia, the Gellhorn pessary can help you to relieve the uncomfortable symptoms and enjoy your life again.
This Gellhorn pessary is designed for use in women with severe 3rd degree prolapse and procedentia.
Pessaries are used as a first-line treatment in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and are designed to support your pelvic organs and help to keep them in the right place. They are also an effective tool for managing pelvic organ prolapse without surgery.
This diagram shows how to insert a Gellhorn Pessary. The 'disc' part should face upwards and the stem should face downwards.
This particular style of pessary is designed for women with severe or third-degree pelvic organ prolapse and helps to support your internal organs. Whilst pessaries cannot cure a pelvic organ prolapse, they help to manage and slow the progression of a prolapse by adding support to the vagina and increasing the tightness of the muscles and tissues of the pelvis.
Gellhorn Pessaries are one of the most popular styles of pessary, and we are pleased to be able to offer a range of sizes for your comfort and convenience.
This pessary is made from flexible silicone for easier insertion and features multiple drainage holes for hygiene and comfort. The stem means that insertion and removal is easy.
This pessary is available in the following diameters: 6.4cm, 7cm, 7.6cm
Please note: initial pessary fitting and sizing should be carried out by a trained healthcare professional.
