Pelvic Organ Prolapse
A strong pelvic floor helps to support pelvic organs. Certain events in our lives as women can weaken our pelvic floor and lead to a prolapse. A pelvic organ prolapse could happen after childbirth, age, menopause, surgery, or increased pressure in the abdomen. Although there are many kinds of prolapses, the most common is a vaginal, bladder, uterine, or bowel prolapse.
A vaginal pessary supports the area affected by Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). It can provide relief from stress incontinence, which causes you to leak urine if you cough, laugh, strain, or exercise. Women who have experienced incontinence during pregnancy can also benefit from a pessary. A pessary is a soft removable medical device that is inserted into the vagina. It comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. A fitting performed by your Health care Provider is essential. It is not recommended to buy and use a pessary without prior assessment.
