Support with Prolapse
The pelvic organs are supported by ligaments, muscles and connective tissues, collectively known as the pelvic floor. Collagen encourages the regeneration and strengthening of this internal structure, but as we get older and collagen production slows, the pelvic floor becomes weaker allowing the pelvic organs to slip down. The result is that the uterus, bladder and rectum either protrude into the vagina or press against the wall of the vagina.
This unpleasant condition is most common in postmenopausal women who have carried children but is not unheard of for younger women or those who have never had a child.
Many people feel (or are told by medical professionals) that their only option is surgical; however, the use of a supporting pessary combined with daily exercises and the right diet and/or supplements can prevent and even reverse genital prolapse. The surgery offered is major, and often results in a full hysterectomy for the patient, so it’s got to be worth a try.
The Gynaecologic POP pessary is suitable for use following prolapse, or as a preventative measure for those who are likely to suffer a prolapse due to weakened pelvic floor muscles.
The device is made from medical grade silicone and can either be used as a temporary measure whilst awaiting surgery; or used long term whilst working towards strengthening your pelvic floor muscles so that surgery is not required.
Don’t Let Prolapse Rule Your Life
The impact of prolapse can be huge, especially as most women believe they can no longer have sex with their partner, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
For women who wish to remain sexually active, this is the best option for them as sexual intercourse is still possible using this type of pessary.
We recommend you discuss the use of this pessary with a licenced clinician and make sure you have selected the correct size for your body. Your clinician will perform a pelvic examination and may measure the vagina length to ensure you are choosing the best treatment for your body and level of prolapse.
