Do pessaries help leakage?

A pessary is a plastic device inserted into the vagina by a healthcare professional to prevent prolapse and bladder leakage. It's made in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be used to administer medication slowly and consistently.

Quite often, a pessary can help with incontinence. It's inserted into the vagina and can help by supporting the neck of the bladder. It is most effective in people with stress incontinence.

If you're considering a pessary, you should consult your healthcare provider to determine if it's the right treatment option for you. Learn more about other treatment options to discuss with your healthcare provide here.
