"My mother is adjusting to wearing the brace to help with her bladder prolapse. She is 86 years old and somewhat reluctant to try new things but WELCOMES the relief.
J.T. from Nashville
"I am enduring my third pregnancy and at about 12 weeks I noticed blue sore vericose veins behind my left knee. I visited a vascular surgeon who advised that based on the pattern of the veins, I would likely end up with vein issues in my vulva as well. After I cried, I asked him what to do and he recommended the V-brace by Fembrace. What can I say, the predicted veins arrived but this device helps compress them so they do not hurt me and that is the best I can ask for since nothing can be done to get rid of the veins until after this pregnancy is over. I am normally a size 2 so I was reluctant to order the medium (which the website advised for pregnancy) because I worried it would be too big. It is fine. This brace is super-tight and the belly strap can easily be pulled over a pregnant belly (early on) or tucked under the belly (later in the pregnancy) as well. At 25 weeks, tucking it under my belly is far more comfortable. I wear the V-brace with the provided underwear over regular underwear to get several uses in between washings. A touch bulky, but tolerable. I would definitely recommend trying this product!" Stephanie from North Carolina
"I am a busy, pregnant, obstetrician/gynecologist and your device is making my pregnancy bearable! I am on my feet ALL THE TIME, for 24 hours at a stretch, and in the operating room standing all day ---I absolutely could not do my job (looking after other pregnant ladies :)) if it weren't for the Fembrace! I will certainly be recommending it to any of my patients who are unlucky enough to be afflicted with this condition!

"What a wonderful product for pregnant women. The V-Brace™ is the ultimate lifting device for relieving vaginal pressure. I recommend it to my patients." Karen Bergstein, Certified nurse midwife Nyack Hospital, NY

What is Genital Prolapse?
Genital prolapse is a general term which includes several conditions, which may occur separately or in combination. These include uterine prolapse (dropped womb), vaginal prolapse, cystocele (dropped bladder), rectocele (dropped rectum), and enterocele (herniation of the small intestine into the space between the rectum and vagina). A prolapsed uterus occurs when the uterus drops from its normal position. The cervix may also descend into the vaginal opening. This condition occurs in approximately 35% of women.
Causes of a prolapsed uterus.
A prolapsed uterus may occur for several reasons, including:
Symptoms of a prolapsed uterus.
Symptoms of a prolapsed uterus include a feeling of bulging, pelvic heaviness or fullness and/or low back pain. The symptoms usually get worse with activity and get better with bed rest. While standing, women with a prolapse may feel like something is falling out.
Other symptoms include:
Women affected by a Genital Prolapse.
Genital prolapse is a condition that commonly affects older post-menopausal women. It also occurs in women during their childbearing years.
What to do if you are experiencing symptoms.
Mild cases of uterine prolapse are not usually treated with surgery.
Kegel Exercises, which are special exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, are helpful for mild prolapse, urinary stress incontinence, sexual function and pelvic discomfort.
A pessary can be used to alleviate more severe symptoms. A pessary is a special prosthesis in different shapes and sizes, that is placed into the vagina by your physician, and can effectively support a prolapse. The pessary must be fitted according to the type and degree of a prolapse. A specialized pessary can also effectively relieve urinary incontinence.
Surgery is used to repair and reconstruct the weakened pelvic floor and restore normal function. It is indicated only when the prolapse is causing significant symptoms and when conservative non-surgical measures have failed.
Our new V-Brace™ support garment will help alleviate the symptoms of Genital Prolapse. The V-Brace™ lifts and supports the vaginal area. This reduces the symptoms of prolapsed uterus including back pain, fullness and the "falling out" feeling.
If you are experiencing symptoms, you should talk to your Gynecologist or Uro-Gynecologist. He or she will perform a pelvic exam to assess the condition. A variety of treatments are available, depending on the severity of the prolapse, your age, and desire to have children.
