The folding silicone Milex Regula Pessary is designed to support first and second degree uterine prolapse and helps prevent the prolapse from expelling the pessary.
The Regula pessary incorporates a unique principle that helps solve the problem of expulsion, which is frequently encountered with other prolapse pessaries. The pressure exerted by the prolapsed uterus/cervix on the flexible, anatomically-adjusting arch or bridge of the Regula automatically spreads the heels outward, thereby helping prevent the expulsion of the pessary.
It is absolutely essential to have your doctor fit you for the accurate size of Regula.
The flexibility of the bridge, which alters the support dimensions of the pessary, must be balanced with the size of the patient’s vaginal vault and
the degree of uterine prolapse.
The patient should be forewarned that it may be necessary for her to be refitted several times. Any additional time expended in the proper fitting of the Regula is rewarded with the knowledge that your patient is receiving the needed support for her prolapse, allowing her to continue her daily activities without fear of expelling her pessary.
The Regula is very similar to the Gehrung.
