Pessaries are flexible, silicone devices that are placed into the vagina to support the uterus, the bladder and the rectum if they have descended (prolapsed). A pessary can also support the neck of the bladder and urethra (the tube from the bladder) to help with urinary incontinence.
A pessary might be right for you if:
- considering non surgical options for urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.
- need temporary or long term support for urinary leakage during exercise or specific activities
- need temporary or long term support for the bladder, uterus or rectum during exercise or other strenuous activities.
