Hello.

I have a grade 3 bladder prolapse. A pessary, tampons, etc/etc/etc did not work for me. No leakage, just bladder protruding to vaginal lips. Yuck. My daughter uses a menstrual sponge. I wondered if it would work for my bladder prolapse. I bought a natural sponge, cut it to what I thought might hold up my bladder. LOL Several tries later I had found the right size of sponge that completely and utterly held my bladder up. After several uses I found the sponge irritated my insides (blood on sponge), so I added a lubricant (flax oil, replens, sliquid). They all work really well. I have several sponges that I now use almost daily. My favourite one is actually a natural sponge used for painting, of all things. You can get it at Michael's. I sew thread on the sponge so I can retrieve it easily. I lubricate the sponge on the outside, draw all edges together, and then insert in to vagina as far up as I can and pull the thread down as I retract my fingers. My bladder is completely held up way past the vaginal area. It does not slip out. I can't feel it as the sponge is so light. It has been a life saver for me. Wash sponge after use with soapy water, or Dawn. I microwave for 1 minute every two weeks to kill any bacteria that may linger on the sponge.

Try it! You might like it.
