The Femmeze® Vagina Trainer is a single user medical device.
A posterior prolapse occurs when the back wall of the vagina nolonger has the support of muscles and connective tissue.
With gravity and the weight/size of a full rectum the back wall prolapses into the vagina.

Prolapses can be graded from 1-4, depending on the how far the prolapse moves down and sometimes out the vagina.
Femmeze helps by temporarily reducing the prolapse, restoring the vaginal wall and rectum to it's more correct position while opening yoru bowels.
