Abstract

Nine incontinent volunteers completed a preliminary study evaluating the use of a Hodge vaginal pessary with support in the treatment of incontinence during physical exercise. Urine loss was measured by weight changes in pads worn during exercise sessions, done both with and without pessaries. Satisfaction with this treatment modality was assessed by questionnaire. The average urine loss of the group during the exercise session without the pessary was 43 g, and with the pessary 16 g. Eight of the 9 women found the pessary comfortable and easy to use.
