I have an appointment with my gynecologist next week about my ongoing stress incontinence issues, and I believe the next course of action will be to be fitted for a pessary (while I do Kegels, they are not providing me with the results I need RIGHT NOW, and biofeedback
, my gynecologist's next option, isn't covered by my insurance).
While I do have some questions that I'll ask him (can I leave it in all the time, will it affect my IUD, do I need to clean it?), I'd like to know from people who actually have one -
What's it like? Can you feel it?
Does it work just for slight trickles, or can it handle heavier output (I can wet my pants with a single heavy cough)?
Any pessary-related feedback would be appreciated.
