Contrelle Activgard allows women to regain voluntary control of their bladder.
Contrelle Activgard is a simple and effective device designed to solve the problem of female stress incontinence. It is made of a soft material, made of molded foam plastic, and is shaped like an umbrella.
Its shape and elasticity means that when it is folded for insertion, it unfolds inside the vagina. This provides gentle support that lifts the bladder slightly and corrects the angle of the bladder neck. This fastening prevents or reduces urine loss, even with exertion.
It is designed so that the patient can go to the bathroom normally. It is not necessary to remove it since it does not press on the urethra, but instead supports the neck of the bladder.
The Contrelle Activgard is available in three sizes and requires some experimentation by the user to find the right size. Some women will experience some initial discomfort until they get used to the product.
It does not produce indications of change in pH values or in bacteriological data.
It has no risk of vaginal or urinary infection and does not cause irritation of the mucous membranes.
How is Contrelle used?
Activgard is very easy to use, it is as invisible and discreet as a menstrual tampon. It is important to place it correctly, you should not notice that you are wearing it.
It should be soaked in normal clean water before use. Before placing it, it must be drained, otherwise it does not absorb the natural moisture of the mucous membranes.
Place the device on the applicator, putting the string in the groove at the bottom and pulling the Contrelle Activgard towards the rounded top.
The applicator and Contrelle Activgard are then inserted into the vagina, up to the height of the applicator rings.
Finally the string is removed from the slot and the applicator is removed from the vagina and cleaned for reuse.
It can be used up to 16 hours a day at most without having to change it except in some cases.6 hours a day support. Contrelle helps stop leaks for up to 16 hours a day and should be removed at bedtime.
You can wear it every day if you want to, as long as you take it out after the recommended 16 hours. There is no need to remove it during the day, even when going to the toilet.
Contrelle should be removed before sexual intercourse and should only be used during pregnancy after consulting your doctor.
During menstruation it should be changed every 4-6 hours and can be used together with other external health protections.
