Prolapsed Uterus Other Therapy
If a woman does not want surgery or is a poor candidate for surgery, she may decide to wear a supportive device, called a pessary, in the vaginal canal to support the falling uterus. The Pessary can be used temporarily or permanently. They come in various shapes and sizes and must be fitted to each woman. If the prolapse is severe, a pessary may not work. Also, pessaries can be irritating inside the vagina and may cause a foul-smelling discharge.
