1 - I have a bladder prolapse treated with a round pessary ring, it works fine.
2 - I have no pain
3 - No discharge
4 - Unaware of it being fitted.
5 - I remove it regular and clean with warm soapy water, refit it.
Everthing is working fine, no problems, I am perfectly able to manage it myself without hospital visits.
Just like to add, anyone else managing their pessary ring themselves, because all is fine and less embarassing, than continual hospital visits.
Thanks for the feedback jaybod! It is encouraging to hear from women who have good luck with pessaries, I also had no problems with mine (although it did take 2 tries-in one visit- to get the correct size for me, depends on how many kinds/degree of POP issues you have), but have extremely busy lifestyle couple with advanced POP so I just wanted it fixed. Although I do hear from women who have problems with their pessaries, if they are fitted properly you don't even know they are in there. Appreciate the feedback!
