Pessary use for Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse

Prolapse is a common condition affecting about 1 in 3 women who have had children but it remains a highly stigmatised condition for which many women delay seeking help. There remains a good deal of uncertainty about the best way to use a pessary for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. The existing evidence base for pessary use remains limited.

This PSP will identify and prioritise areas of research uncertainty about the use of a vaginal pessary device for the management of symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse.
