What is the V2 Vulvar Varicosities & Prolapse Support is used for?
Compression therapy for vulvar varicosities or the feeling that “everything is going to fall out the bottom.” During pregnancy, vulvar varicosities can occur for many reasons. As your uterus grows throughout pregnancy, it begins to place increased pressure on the veins around your pelvic area. This pressure begins to reduce or restrict adequate blood flow to the pubic region. This reduced blood flow, coupled with naturally higher levels of oestrogen and progesterone, can result in the veins becoming distended, and popping out, thus creating Vulvar Varicosities (similar to varicose veins, except they appear in the pubic area). Vulvar varicosities can be sore and uncomfortable and can lead to the feeling of everything about to ‘fall out the bottom’. The compression therapy applied to the pubic area when wearing the V2 Supporter, helps to alleviate this feeling, and by wearing the V2 Supporter before rising in the morning, the amount of swelling in the vulvar veins can be reduced.

V2 Supporter wearing instructions:
Ensuring that the applique on the V2 Supporter is at the front and center of the hip band, step into the V2 Supporter as you would regular underpants. If you need to increase or decrease the level of compression, loosen the tabs on the back two straps, then anchor the tabs by placing them either higher up (to give less compression) or lower down (to provide more compression) on the straps to achieve the level of compression that is right for your needs.
