Pessaries to treat incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse
There are over 250 pessaries available to treat symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence, yet very few patients are told about the availabilities.The ring pessary is the most widely used to treat pelvic organ prolapse issues but is is suitable for everyone?

Over the next few weeks I will be showing you how different types of pessaries can help certain pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence issues.

Pelvic organ prolapse is essentially a ‘hernia’ a decent of an organ into the wall of  another organ in the pelvic area or vagina.  For more information about pelvic organ prolapse please visit www.incostress.com

The T pessary

T pessary for treatment of Cystocele or/and Rectocele

T Pessary type R

The T-Pessary is specifically designed for the treatment of cystocele and rectocele. The cylindrical ergonomic shape supports the bladder into an anatomically correct position.

A cystocele occurs when the bladder drops into the vaginal wall. The vaginal wall over time becomes thin and weakens and can not support the vital organs which leads to the bladder ‘sinking’ into the vagina.

Many women experience the feeling of a ‘bulge’ or a ‘ball’ inside the vagina. Some women find that they have urinary stress incontinence or the inability to empty the bladder completely,  which may be an indication of an early cystocele.

Constipation or unable to completely clean the bottom after wiping can indicate a rectocele.

The T-Pessary is made from body friendly medical grade silicone and can be easily inserted and removed.  The different sizes allow a perfect fitting.

Is surgery necessary?

The best person to speak to, is your doctor. Prepare your questions before you see him so you are sure that all your questions are answered.

Due to the lack of knowledge many women have about their own body and pelvic organ prolapse they wait too long before seeking medical advice. Waiting too long will only make the condition worse and in some cases the only answer is surgery. To avoid getting this far, prevention is the best method. Kegel exercises should be carried out on a regular basis starting in your early 20’s or even in your late teens. Ask your women’s health physiotherapist about how to carry out kegels correctly.

Nobody wants to end up under the knife, and one alternative may be the use of a pessary, it may not be a permanent solution but it may just give you that extra support you need to offer you a better quality of life or even a solution whilst waiting for surgery.

The specially designed surface avoids pressure points in the mucosa. Especially during exercise – such as heavy work or sport – the T-pessary will hold bladder and bowel in the anatomically correct position. Contact us for more information www.incostress.com

How do I know which size is right for me?

Correct size will have to be determined by your doctor or trained physiotherapist who specialises in pelvic organ prolapse.
