The Peristeen® Anal plug is a simple and effective aid for faecal incontinence. It prevents the uncontrolled loss of solid stool. Because of its small size, the anal plug can easily fit into your pocket or handbag. It cannot be seen by others as it is worn inside the body.
Unpleasant odours are also avoided as the plug retains stool in the bowels.
The anal plug is inserted just like a suppository. The foam has been compressed to a small size and coated with a water-soluble film. When the film is exposed to the warmth and moisture of the rectum, it dissolves – the plug then expands, conforming to the shape of the rectal cavity. By protecting against leakage, the anal plug gives you the confidence to participate in activities where you need to feel secure, such as swimming.
