Contiform Vaginal Pessary for Stress Incontinence Now Available on NHS Wednesday 13 February 2013 PDF Print We are delighted to announce that Contiform is now available on prescription. This is the first vaginal device to be approved by the NHS Prescription Pricing Agency for listing onto the NHS Drug Tariff. Director of Pioneer Medical Europe, Suezy Kowalski, says: “It has taken many months of hard work to get our application approved by the NHS but we are delighted that women now have a non-surgical alternative available to help treat stress incontinence”. Contiform gives women that do not want surgery for stress incontinence a real choice that works. After the recent TVT scares, many Urogynaecologists are recognising that there can be significant problems with TVTs and are returning to pessaries, the more traditional method of treating stress incontinence. Contiform gives women the perfect solution; it is a vaginal device similar to a pessary, available in 3 sizes that can be inserted just like a tampon. It can be used all day every day or just when exercising. As it is anatomically designed, it is very easy to insert. It works by supporting the urethra, the tube that that carries urine from the bladder, and keeps the bladder neck closed during moments of stress (when running, exercising, coughing or sneezing), so stopping any leaks, giving instant results. Contiform can be used in conjunction with pelvic floor exercises to bring about long term improvement in pelvic muscle tone. Stephanie Taylor, pelvic floor expert and founder of Kegel8 says: “Contiform is a great way to give instant relief to women suffering stress incontinence. Combined with Kegel exercise, for example with a Kegel8 device, it can bring about real change and help free you from the misery of leaks and endless toilet trips”. Now that Contiform is available on prescription, it gives every woman in the UK who suffers from stress incontinence an affordable, instant, easy, non-surgical solution that works.
