09 Oct UGSA Vaginal Pessaries Information Sheet
A vaginal pessary is a removable device made of either vinyl or silicone that is inserted into the vagina to support the prolapsed walls of your vagina and/or uterus.
It is safe to use both in the short and long term. Various sorts of pessaries are available, depending on your prolapse, and your gynaecologist can fit one once they have examined you. You may need to try a few types and sizes before the best kind is found for you. The simplest and most commonly used is the ring pessary.
