Pessaries

There are many different types of pessaries, here we explain each one individually for you to have a better understanding of which pessary is best suited for your symptoms

Choosing the right pessary can be a dilemma and getting the perfect size can be more than trial an error. It can be very distressful for some patients especially if they have been fitted with a pessary in the clinic then find it falls out the minute they get home.

 

Good practise in the clinic should be that the patient is examined both lying and standing to assess the extent of the prolapse, this will help the doctor assess the correct size and shape that best suits the patient.

 

Once the patient has been advised on the pessary, some pessaries the patient should be trained on how to remove and insert it herself, then the patient should walk around for around 20mins, have a cup of tea and try to go to the toilet before leaving the clinic to ensure the pessary stays in the correct position.

Are you restricted from going out just because your condition needs a toilet there and then?

Here is a scheme which allows patients with disabilities to have full access to all the disable toilets in the UK. Women with incontinence and POP are entitled to this service. Download the brochure.

Access to all the disabled toilets in the UK
The National Key Scheme –
opening doors to independent living If you have a health condition or disability (particularly if you’re a wheelchair-user) finding an accessible toilet that’s clean, tidy and available for you to use can be a challenge. And they’re often kept locked.
Under Radar’s scheme, special locks are installed on public disabled toilet doors to give disabled people priority access. Local authorities have adopted the scheme and ‘Radar toilets’ can now be found in shopping centres, pubs, stores, bus/train stations and other locations nationwide
