The pessary is a vaginal prosthesis that has evolved over centuries to become an effective medical device to relieve the stress of uterine or bladder prolapse, cystocele, rectocele, and often improves the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Pessaries are distributed in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. They are perfectly safe, effective, and comfortable for long term usage.
A pessary is a mechanical device, not unlike the common diaphragm, made of non-toxic medical-grade silicone and used to support the lower pelvis. This material is biologically inert so allergic reactions are rare. Pessaries can be autoclaved (except donuts) or boiled or sterilized using cold sterilizing agents (all pessaries).
