Brief Summary:

Genital prolapse is a common complain. 30-40% of women will complain of uterine prolapse or cystocele or rectocele, or mixed. About half of them will require surgical repair for the prolapse, with or without hysterectomy. Of these patients about 30-40% will have recurrence of the prolapse, which in some cases requires second operation.

In this study the investigators want to investigate whether a vaginal pessary inserting in the end of the primary surgery, for 4 weeks, will reduce the recurrence rate.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Use of Pessary Reduce the Number of Prolapse Recurrence Uterine Prolapse Cystocele Rectocele Device: vaginal pessary Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

All patients going for vaginal surgery for genital prolapse, stage 3-4, with cystocele, rectocele or uterine cervix prominent from the vagina. These patients, after signing an informed consent, a vaginal pessary will insert at the end of the operation and will stay for 4 weeks post-op.

After 4 weeks the pessary will be removed, and the patient will followed for 2 years, for recurrence of prolapse.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1. study group

100 patients who agree to participate in the study, will be operate according to our protocol for pelvic organ prolapse. At the end of the operation a vaginal pessary will be inserted and suture to the vaginal walls for a 4 week period.

Follow-up will be after 3, 6, and 12 month period.

Device: vaginal pessary
A vaginal pessary will be inserted at the end of the operation, for genital prolapse, and will be sutured to the vaginal wall. The pessary will stay in the vagina for 4 weeks.

No Intervention: 2. control
100 Women who will refuse to participate in the study, will agree to be follow-up by our team for 3, 6, and 12 month post operative.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reduction of recurrence rate of vaginal prolapse, post vaginal surgery repair. [ Time Frame: 24 month ]
    The investigators hope to see a low percentage of prolapse recurrence in the study (pessary) group, comparing to the control (no pessary) group
