(NSFW) Do any ladies wear a pessary for POP?

Asked by Harper1234 (683points) 3 weeks ago

I found out I have a prolapsed bladder and started checking into it and so many women have other parts down there that are prolapsed because of childbirth, lifting heavy objects….
So many that have had surgery end up having the same problem 2 years down the road. II know I don’t want surgery but was wondering how many women have used a pessary for this type problem. Frustrating as this is NEVER talked about and it can happen right after childbirth of in your 60’s. Most Dr’s just want to do surgery but there are other methods to try before surgery.
Anyone have this?

Mom got the tube insert, not the pessary.

“We” are having results with this approach to POP The posture component is where she has made the most improvement so far.
