Supportive ring: Rectocele occurs when pelvic floor muscle lose support; rectum, usually uterus, maybe bladder sag. Pessary is a ring inserted into vagina to help keep things up and perky (kind of like a vaginal truss). This helps keep the rectum straight (as name implies), and lets it do its job of evacuating stool out, not bulge into vaginal vault.
