I have been trained in the fitting of a ring and cube pessary, two of the most commonly used devices to support pelvic organ prolapse
A pessary is a device designed to be worn in the vagina to provide support to the pelvic organs. A pessary can be used to to relieve the symptoms of prolapse and / or stress incontinence. Pessaries have previously been thought of as a last resort or instead of surgery but many women find huge benefit from wearing a pessary who haven’t considered surgery. Depending on the type of pessary and your individual circumstance they can remain in situ or can be worn only when a bit of extra support is needed during certain activities such as exercise.
Pessary fitting can be difficult to access or involve a lengthy wait through the NHS which has led some women to buy their own devices directly from the internet. If this is your situation then I can help advise on a suitable device and check it is fitting properly. Before making any recommendations then a full history and physical examination is performed and recommendations are based on the findings. If a pessary is recommended then it will be part of a whole treatment plan and follow ups must be attended to check the fit and make sure there are no complications.
