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 Conservative Pelvic Organ 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 initial insertion of the device should be carried out by a medical professional or clinician. Gynaecologic are specialists in their field who develop pessaries to maintain pelvic organ prolapse as a conservative treatment option.
The device is made from medical grade silicone with a smooth finish to help prevent against biofilm and is softer than most other pessaries. It 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.
There is a finger loop attached to the irregular hexagon shaped pessary for easy removal if the patient so wishes, however this finger loop can be removed if required for fitting.
Don’t Let Prolapse Rule Your Life
The impact of prolapse can be huge, the simple things you used to enjoy may seem impossible due to the constant dragging down below, and the feeling that everything is going to drop. A supporting pessary such as this means you can get your life back on track whilst you await further treatment and work on strengthening the pelvic floor to prevent your prolapse worsening.
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 (please see size guide below). 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, before inserting.
For your peace of mind and health reasons, this pessary will arrive sterilised.
