Contiform Vaginal Pessary

 

 

It is estimated that up to one in three women will suffer to some degree of incontinence at some point in their life. This can affect women of all ages and may occur at any time, but often starts in pregnancy, after childbirth, or during menopause. Personal incontinence is caused by weakness in the pelvic floor muscles whick allows leakage during ordinary, everyday activities such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, lifting, or when you are most active. 

Contiform is a clinically-proven, highly effective, self-inserted device for relief from Stress Incontinence.

Made from medical-grade elastomeric material, the Contiform intravaginal device is moulded and shaped like a hollow tampon and is worn discreetly and comfortably inside the vagina, inserted and removed in much the same way you’d insert a tampon.

Contiform stops stress incontinence and urine leakage by supporting the urethra and restoring the body’s natural anatomy. With regular use, it can work in harmony with conventional pelvic floor exercises to bring about long-term improvement in muscle tone.

It can be worn all day, every day, or simply during activities like exercising. Many women prefer the reassurance of wearing it constantly to avoid leaking when laughing, coughing or sneezing, especially during the cold and ‘flu season. Contiform should be removed for cleaning at night. It includes a silicone removal ribbon to assist in removal.
