Bowl pessaries may be used in patients with complaints of less severe prolapse.
The pelvic floor serves as support for the pessary.
Bowl pessaries are available in a perforated version which is called a Sieve Bowl pessary which may facilitate the drainage of discharge.
Sizes range from 55 to 95 mm in 5 mm increments.
The sieve bowl pessary with the smallest diameter that supports the pelvis should be prescribed.
