For the management of stress urinary incontinence

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 easily be inserted in the privacy of your 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 just during activities that cause you to leak, such as exercising. If you experience stress incontinence (SUI) when coughing, sneezing, laughing and during everyday activities you may prefer the reassurance of wearing it all day to avoid leaking. We recommend you also see a health professional for guidance in tretament to help strengthen your pelvic floor as well.

PLEASE NOTE:

You will notice there is a small split in your Contiform when you first open it. This is supposed to be there and allows you to bend the device in order to insert it correctly.
Contiform has been manufactured with the split on the inside of the collar to reduce excess pressure on the bladder neck and avoid any possibility of obstruction to the urinary flow. The slit will appear when you first fold the device, this does not affect the efficacy of the device. Depending on the frequency of use, the slit will gradually lengthen until it reaches over the top of the collar. This is an indication the device needs to be replaced.

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 two months of delivery.

 

WHEN NOT TO USE CONTIFORM :

  • During sexual intercourse.
  • If you are pregnant.
  • If you have any vaginal infections such as thrush
  • If you have any vaginal erosions or soreness.
  •  If you have cystitis (bladder infection) or UTI (urinary tract infection)
  •  If you are using an IUD (speak to your doctor. This precaution is in case you accidentally pull your IUD out when removing Contiform)
  • Within 2 months of having a baby.
  • If you have a POP (pelvic organ prolapse) Contiform is not designed for use as a pessary. A small prolapse may allow comfortable insertion, however a large prolapse will preclude correct insertion. If you are able to retain a tampon then you should be able to use Contiform.
  • You should not use Contiform if you : have had sling surgery for stress incontinence or have had vaginal mesh inserted.; leak constantly; have had any form of bladder surgery or suffer from a previously diagnosed condition affecting the bladder. Check first with your doctor

If you experience any irritation or vaginal discharge during use, remove Contiform and contact your health professional.

SIZING :

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 practise to get used to.
Because everyone is different, all three sizes are included in the Starter Pack. This allows you to determine the size which is most suitable. Once you know this, you can order replacements in your size

To determine the size for you:

  •  first try the Medium size from the Starter Pack
  • once inserted it should feel comfortable like a well fitted tampon does.
  • it should 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  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.

CLEANING AND CARE OF YOUR CONTIFORM:
 

  • Contiform must be removed at least once every 24 hours for cleaning. 
  • it should be washed with warm water and non-perfumed soap after each use. 
  • do not boil or place Contiform in the miocrowave during cleaning as this will reduce its effectiveness.
  • after washing, dry Contiform thoroughly.
  • one Contiform can be used for up to 45 days  (or longer if used infrequently) depending on how often you use it before it needs to be replaced. The device needs to be replaced when the split on the inside extaends up over the to of the device

You will notice there is a small spilt in your Contiform when you first open it. This is supposed to be there and allows you to bend the device in order to insert it correctly.
