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 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.
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.
