Wallace® Ring Pessaries
WHAT IS A RING PESSARY?
The Wallace® Ring Pessary is a PVC removable device which is designed to ease uterine prolapse and other uterine displacements, by adding support to the vaginal wall.
It helps prevent the uterus from descending, relieving pressure on the bladder and bowel and removing the distress caused by the discomfort of the uterus lying in the vagina.
WHY DO I NEED A RING PESSARY
Due to weakened and/or damaged pelvic floor muscles, your uterus, bladder or rectum has dropped down into your vagina, and are no longer providing enough support.
A prolapse can be caused by many things including:
- Pregnancy and childbirth
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
A Wallace® Ring Pessary does not require surgery and is fitted by a doctor or nurse practitioner.
It can ease symptoms of bulging, discomfort, urinary or bowel problems as well as sexual difficulties, and make you feel more comfortable.
If surgery is required, it can be used to make you more comfortable while you are waiting.
