Pessaries3_314x209A pessary is an internal assistive device that is worn in the vagina to stop incontinence or support pelvic organ prolapse. It can be easily inserted and removed by the wearer and should not be felt when using it. It can be used just for activities when the prolapse is bothersome, such as running or jumping, or kept in all day long if needed. It helps the user to become symptom free and return to the activities they want to do without leaking urine or experiencing the symptoms of prolapse.
At Dayan Physiotherapy, we fit and prescribe pessaries.
