Efemia Bladder Support

Efemia Bladder Support

Efemia Bladder Support is a vaginal and non-surgical device that reduces leakage caused by stress urinary incontinence.

How does it work? 

The device is inserted into the vagina until the handle rests tight up against the pubic bone/perineum and the support rings are completely through the vaginal opening. The labia cover the handle.

When pressure is placed on the bladder, the mid-urethra is pushed lightly against Efemia’s support rings, making it bend so leakage is reduced or stops altogether.

You can choose between three sizes: 30 mm, 35 mm and 40 mm. To determine the right size, we recommend that you begin with the smallest one, then try on from there. We offer a start set with all three sizes, allowing ample opportunity to find out which works best for you.

Everything you need to know

Would you like to know more about the Efemia Bladder Support?

Here are the most common questions and answers about the product.

How do you get a prescription for the Efemia Bladder Support? Who can prescribe it?

– In Sweden, you first have to talk to your health centre. To have the product prescribed, the county/region that runs the centre must have it in their product assortment.

I’m pregnant and I want to use the Efemia Bladder Support, can I?

– We have not tested it on pregnant women, so we can’t recommend that you use it.

How do you know that you need a vaginal support? When will pelvic floor exercises help?

– It’s not easy to know. It can take some time before pelvic floor exercises produce results, so it’s essential to keep at it. However, it’s fair to expect that you’ll keep improving. The Efemia Bladder Support can be an option for you until you feel the desired effect from your pelvic floor exercises. You can also train other muscles without worrying about bladder leaks.

What’s the difference between Contrelle, a TVT-operation and the Efemia Bladder Support?

– Contrelle supports the bladder neck, and therefore functions differently to the Efemia Bladder Support, which supports the urethra. Contrelle is a disposable product, whereas the Efemia Bladder Support can be used for three months. TVT is a surgical method where a sling is placed under the urethra to provide support. The Efemia Bladder Support and TVT support the urethra in the same place.

Design of the product

Product design

Support rings

The upper part consists of two support rings. These support the mid-urethra through the front vaginal wall when there is a sudden increase in pressure on the abdomen and bladder.

Mid-section

When there is a sudden increase in intra-abdominal pressure, the mid-section ensures there is sufficient support in the rings. It also ensures that the rings are positioned against the mid-urethra. Thanks to its triangular shape, it can be both thin and remain stable.

Handle

The handle remains outside the body. It keeps the device in place and makes it easier to remove.

Find the right size

There are three sizes: 30 mm, 35 mm och 40 mm.

How do I know which size I should use?

Best thing to do is simply try and see. Start with the smallest size and see if it works for you. If it doesn’t, go up a size. And, even if the smallest size does works for you, it might be an idea to try a larger size for comparison’s sake.
