Our vision

We want to see a Calgary where women can fully participate in life, unrestricted by pelvic organ prolapse.

What is a Pessary?

A pessary is a silicone device that supports the pelvic organs: bladder, uterus, and rectum. If they shift or descend (typically due to pregnancy or childbirth), they can make a woman feel pressure, heaviness, or pain. Pessaries come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so they need to be fitted to a woman’s individual anatomy.

Women use pessaries for everyday symptom relief, for support during physical activity (like a sports bra), or at work. Nurses, teachers, flight attendants, restaurant workers, and other women working on their feet may need extra support for their pelvic organs. Recreational and professional athletes get the health benefits of physical activity despite a pelvic organ prolapse.

Is it Right for Me?
