Are you going to respond
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Well in such a case you need a pessary which would treat a cystocele (fallen bladder), usually a pessary is used which is referred to as dish with support. This would be fitted into your vagina by your doctor and in some types it can be changed at home by yourself after your trains you to use it. Sometimes this is prescribed with estrogen cream which can be very helpful here as well. In most cases, a Hodge with support or a Gehrung pessary may be more effective. These can be fitted by your doctor and i would recommend that you talk to him about the hodge support or gehrung pessary.

Are there different sizes
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes there are different sizes usually numbered from 3 - 5, that is why it would need your doctor to fit you with various sizes and TYPES to see which one works the best for you. This would need a couple of repeated visits to your doctor to see the one which is needed to control you situation best.

How do measure what size you need
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Pessaries are fit by trial and error. In patients who use a diaphragm, the size of the diaphragm does not correlate with the size of the pessary. Proper fitting of the pessary often requires you to try several sizes and/or styles. A variety of styles and sizes would be made available during your fitting session. They would give you the pessaries after a complete pelvic examination which would give your doctor and idea of which size would work for you and then he would guide you through the whole process.
