Contiform Replacement Unit
Designed by an Australian gynaecologist, Contiform is a revolutionary product for incontinence that is softly contoured and worn discreetly and comfortably inside the vagina. Contiform stops wetness by supporting the urethra and restoring the body’s natural anatomy.
Contiform can also provide a resistance against which to exercise the pelvic floor muscles whilst in position.
Contiform can be easily inserted by women in the privacy of their own home. It compresses down and is inserted into the vagina in much the same way as you would insert a tampon. It can be worn all day, every day, or simply during activities such as exercising. Many women prefer the reassurance of wearing it constantly to avoid leaking when coughing, sneezing or laughing.
However, Contiform should be removed for cleaning at night.
For hygiene and efficacy purposes, Contiform should be replaced every 45-60 days (or longer if used infrequently).
Contiform is an excellent option for:
- active women who find they only leak during exercise e.g. jogging, netball
- managing stress urinary incontinence whilst working on a pelvic floor strengthening programme
- women who have improved their pelvic floor muscle tone to the point where they only experience leakage in certain conditions, where Contiform can provide effective protection.
- can also be used successfully by new mothers, although not within six weeks of delivery.
Contiform is easy and comfortable to use once you have found the size that is right for you. Some women find, just like using tampons for the first time, that it may take a little practice to get used to. Because every woman is different, all three sizes are included in the Starter Pack. This allows you to determine the size which is most suitable. Once you have done this, simply order replacements in your size.
To determine the size for you, first try the Medium size from the starter pack, the one in the silver storage pack. Once inserted it should feel comfortable and prevent leakage. If it doesn’t feel comfortable or you have difficulty emptying your bladder when you are wearing it, swap to the smaller size. Alternatively, try the Large size if the Medium is comfortable but you find that you’re still leaking. The manufacturer suggests that first time users have Contiform fitted by a professional continence nurse or physiotherapist to ensure it is inserted and fitted correctly.
The manufacturer also recommends that you use the removal ribbon that is included with each Contiform start pack as it makes removing Contiform much safer and easier.
