A vaginal pessary is a silicon device that is used to support the walls of the vagina when there is pelvic organ prolapse (POP). This can be the prolapse of the bladder, bowel or uterus 🤸‍♀️

There are many different types of pessaries catering for different prolapses or incontinence. Our Women's Health Physio team can decide which pessary to use that is most suitable for your condition and support your individual needs.

What does the research show? 🔎

✔️Combining pelvic floor muscle training and pessary fittings led to twice as many women perceiving improvements in prolapse symptoms and POP-specific quality of life. 

✔️When a pessary is fitted, significantly greater improvements are made in reducing prolapse symptoms like discomfort, urinary issues, and defecatory issues.

✔️The use of pessaries when managing POP can delay or even avoid the need for surgical intervention. Plus, pessary fittings can be used to help manage urinary incontinence, pelvic pain syndromes and aid in constipation management.
