In brief: Support

A pessary is a nonsurgical treatment to help women with pelvic organ prolapse (fallen baldder, uterus).
There are any variations on the device, but all are placed into the vagina and remain there to support the pelvic organs. It is usually placed by a gynecologist or urogynecologist.
