To avoid inflammation or even bleeding found when using other vaginal pessaries, Marsh uses bio-compatible silicon and high precision molding in products. Please talk to your physician to decide the correct size.
What it is
A vaginal pessary is a soft, removable device that goes in your vagina. It supports areas that are affected by pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
Why use it
In multiple researches, vaginal pessaries are listed as first line therapy for POP. Two out of three who use a vaginal pessary find it an acceptable option for management of their prolapse symptoms.
An NCBI paper finds out:
Vaginal pessary use had 90.7% efficacy, a high level of treatment satisfaction (75.3%), and a positive impact on the improvement of vaginal and sexual symptoms, quality of life, and mental health.
Pria was founded in 2002 to bring the benefits of fluorescent clinical diagnostics into point-of-care and consumer markets. Since founding, the company has developed a novel diagnostics platform and built its first product Element. In addition to Pria´s internal development efforts, the Company has on-going collaborations with top tier universities as well as working as a sub-contractor on DARPA and NIH grant programs.

What is a pessary?
A pessary is a silicone disk which comes in multiple styles and sizes. The style/size is chosen based on the patient’s medical needs and individual anatomy. A pessary is fit in the office with no procedure necessary.
What purpose does a pessary serve?
A pessary is typically used for pelvic organ prolapse. In some cases, it may also be used to decrease urinary incontinence. It may be used temporarily if a patient desires surgery or as an alternative to surgery. Its purpose is to alleviate vaginal pressure and aid in bladder emptying.
How do I manage/care for a pessary?
Depending on the style, a pessary may be taken out and cleaned by the patient or the health care provider. Women who remove their own pessary typically do so twice weekly. The removal schedule is discussed at the office visit and altered based on individual needs. Once removed, you may choose to leave the pessary out overnight or even a few days. Other women will remove, clean and immediately replace their pessary. This is based on patient choice and comfort.
