Pelvic Organ Prolapse, also known as POP, is a condition many women suffer from that often goes undiagnosed due to the difficulty of discussing such a sensitive issue with doctors or loved ones.
What Do You Know About Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
How Common Is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
Although this condition is not widely known by sufferers, reports have suggested that as many as 1 in 3 adult women are affected by pelvic organ prolapse. This condition is also referred to as "genital prolapse" or "vaginal prolapse," because the muscles and ligaments that make up the pelvic floor supporting pelvic organs such as the uterus, bladder, urethra, small intestine, and rectum weaken, causing the organs to lower.
Around 64% of women* don't know they have pelvic organ prolapse, and many women are too embarrassed to receive consultation even though they show symptoms.
*This figure is based on results from 530 women and 100 gynecologic practitioners surveyed by Johnson & Johnson concerning POP in November 2011.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Symptoms
The feeling of stiffness or something "falling down"
Feeling like something has been pushed upward when you sit down
Discomfort in the lower abdomen
Using the toilet but still not feeling any relief
Increased discomfort in the evening
What Causes Pelvic Organ Prolapse?
The causes of pelvic organ prolapse are mainly thought to be due to problems with the pelvic floor muscles.
Decrease in muscle mass due to aging
Intense exercise or physical activities
Suffering from chronic stomach pain
Reduction in female hormones
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Treatment Options
Appropriate treatment depends on age, progression of symptoms, and the patient's lifestyle.
Kegels exercises are a preventative treatment option for the early stages of pelvic organ prolapse. They are done to strengthen pelvic muscles.
A pessary is a medical device that is inserted into the vagina to help support prolapsed organs.
After consultation with your doctor, one of several surgery procedures may be suggested based on your condition.
For women who are looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive remedy to pelvic organ prolapse, there is hope.
FemiCushion is a simple product created to relieve your symptoms and discomfort.
The New Product for Treating Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Easy to use. Easy to remove. FemiCushion can help you reclaim your life!
FemiCushion is a new non-prescription medical product designed to treat and prevent all types of pelvic organ prolapse such as uterine prolapse, urethral prolapse, bladder prolapse, cystocele, enterocele, and rectocele. The special cushion gently pushes your pelvic organs back to their correct positions inside your body. Since FemiCushion is not inserted into the vagina, you can avoid side affects often associated with using a pessary.
FemiCushion supports your pelvic organs from the outside with a uniquely soft cushion. If you have had difficulty using a pessary for prolapse, you now have an easier, non-surgical solution. The FemiCushion system is discreetly designed to look and fit like underwear, so it goes unnoticed to everyone except you.
My mission is to help women end their suffering from POP.
The Inventor of FemiCushion
Representative Director of
Women's Medical Research Inc.
FemiCushion was created from an understanding that many of the women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse desire an alternative to current POP treatments. This non-prescription product is an ideal solution for anyone who is uncomfortable talking about the condition with a physician or feels hopeless about relieving symptoms due to limited treatment options. If pelvic organ prolapse is affecting your quality of life, I invite you to join the growing number of women who have reclaimed their body and joy for living with FemiCushion. If I can help even one woman end the suffering of POP, then I will have accomplished what I set out to do.
What Our Customers Tell Us
I bought FemiCushion for my 90-year-old mother. Since she didn’t want to undergo surgery, I searched online for treatment methods and came across this product. My mother is very pleased with it. The everyday worry and anxiety of going out has lessened, and she looks much happier and brighter than before.

After being diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse, I was told that the only option was surgery. The ring pessary didn`t fit me well and I was bothered by the accompanying pain and discomfort. After using FemiCushion, I feel like my prolapse symptoms have been greatly reduced. It was most uncomfortable when I would take a bath, but now it barely pushes out, saving me a great deal of trouble. Moreover, unlike the pessary, it doesn’t need to be inserted into my body, making it very easy to use.
58 years old, Japan
My symptoms have worsened over the past year, but I didn’t want to undergo surgery, so after finding out about this product I decided to give it a try. My job requires me to stand for long periods of time, so I feel much more relieved now that the pain and discomfort are gone. I plan on using FemiCushion as a solution to my Pelvic Organ Prolapse from now on.

Supporter Sizing Guide
We offer 3 different sizes for the FemiCushion supporter garment. Please measure yourself using the instructions below before placing your order.
Measure the pink area as shown in the image (across the belly button on bare skin).
Please confirm the FemiCushion size that suits you after measuring your waist by referring to the sizing chart.
Please be sure to measure horizontally around your navel over bare skin. FemiCushion works best if the horizontal belt on the supporter fits over the waist. Depending on your figure, there may be some leftover fabric, but this does not affect its use.
Because our supporter sizes overlap, please be sure to carefully select the size based on your measurement.
* For sizes other than those listed above, please submit an inquiry.

How FemiCushion Works
The most important component of the FemiCushion kit, the cushion gently holds the prolapsed organs in the body. The extremely soft surface is made of 100% medical-grade silicone.
The holder absorbs any urine or discharge. You can set the cushion and secure it within the holder to prevent it from becoming displaced or entering into the vagina. Because it's made of cloth, you can wash and use it repeatedly. When traveling, or for those who deal with a lot of urine leakage, disposable holders are also available for purchase separately.
Adjusting the width and length of the belt brings the cushion closer to the vaginal opening and plays an important role in keeping the cushion in a secured position. You can choose the size and type of supporter when placing your order.
* The cushion is not designed to work with commercially available underwear or girdles. To ensure proper use, please be sure to only use supporters made for FemiCushion.
FemiCushion will not improve symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse unless you use the cushion, holder, and supporter together as designed. Please do not use them individually, nor with other companies' products.
