A Pessary is a device that is worn inside the vagina to provide structural support to the vaginal walls and is one of the non-surgical treatment options for women with prolapse. Pessaries are plastic or silicone and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to cater for women’s different needs and anatomy.
Our Physiotherapists are trained to determine which pessary is best suited for you. When successfully fitted, pessaries can be as effective as surgery for relieving prolapse symptoms and can be used in conjunction with pelvic floor muscle training to build firm support for the pelvic organs.
We have specific pessary fitting appointments that give the physiotherapist and yourself plenty of time to trail various options and teach you self-management, if this is an option for you.
