The thick ring pessary consists of flexible silicone. In contrast to normal ring pessary it does not include a steel spring filling but consists of a larger circumference of the ring part. Thus overlay surface is larger and the risk of necrosis of the vaginal wall may decrease. Preferably older patients with descensus and mild cases of prolapse without incontinence are treated with this type. An intact pelvic floor (also if reduced) is required for this pessary.

The maximal uninterrupted period of application is 28 days. It is recommended that the patient changes the pessary herself, i.e. she may remove it in the evening and insert it in the morning. The patient should be trained about application / change by a healthcare professional.

The product must not be used by other patients and be stored by room temperature. The pessary may be cleaned under warm running water without using any disinfectant. The material can be cleaned and disinfected preferably with aldehyd-containing solutions (Gigasept FF). The pessary can also be sterilized by steam (134ºC /3,8 bar) or hot air (250ºC).
