What Is Pelvic Prolapse?

The pelvic muscles and tissues support a woman’s pelvic organs like a hammock. The pelvic organs include the uterus, bladder, cervix, vagina, and rectum. A prolapse happens when the pelvic muscles and the tissues can no longer support these organs. This causes one or more pelvic organs to drop or prolapse into or out of the vagina.

There are usually 4 stages of pelvic organ prolapse:
The prolapse is at a mild level. The pelvic organs are still reasonably in their place.
The pelvic organs remain inside the vagina but have started to fall.
The pelvic organs have fallen into or beyond the vaginal opening.
The pelvic organs have completely fallen beyond the vaginal opening.

What Is A Pessary?

A pessary is a small, removable device that is inserted into the vagina/birth canal. It provides support in the area of prolapse, helping regain healthy pelvic muscles and tissues. There are numerous shapes and sizes of pessaries to meet the individual support requirements of every patient. Seeking Pessary fitting services from our therapists will ensure a pain-free, comfortable procedure, fitting that feels like it’s not even there. Pessaries are a low-risk treatment option for women who want to avoid surgery or for those who have medical problems that make surgeries too risky. However, pessaries require ongoing special care to avoid issues of ulceration or bleeding (Scroll down for the post-care tips!). With the right protection, you can use the pessary comfortably for the long term.

Pessaries Work

This Is How Pessaries Work

A pessary provides mechanical/physical support to hold up the prolapsed organs within the vagina. The pessary works by lifting up the walls of the vagina to provide support for the bladder, bowel, or uterus.
A Walk Down The Memory Lane - History Of Pessaries The pessary is not a new-day concept. Different forms of pessaries have been used throughout history. Hippocrates, the Greek physician, once made a reference in which half a pomegranate was used to support a prolapsed uterus.
By the 16the century, women started using pessaries by dipping a ball of string into the wax. It was only in the 19th century that pliable pessaries were manufactured on a production scale. This was the time when vulcanized rubber was discovered. Most pessaries today are made of medical-grade silicone. They are durable, hypoallergenic, and relatively easy to insert and remove.
