The subject will use the ProVATE device of the chosen size at the clinic vicinity for about one (1) hour and for 40-80 hours at her home environment, to confirm that the chosen size is appropriate for the user. Each usage will be followed by a vaginal examination. In case the investigator will determine that the subject should be fitted with a different size of the ProVATE device the subject will repeat this stage with a different device size until the suitable size is confirmed by the investigator.


The subject will use the ProVATE device for at least 28 days during a 45 days period, at her home environment, and fill a usage diary. Each device will be used for at least 24 hours. At least one (1) follow-up phone call will be held with the subject per a week. After 14 usage days or following at least two (2) usages (the latest of them) the subject will be scheduled for vaginal examination at the clinic (visit four (4)).

End Of Use At the end of use the subject will return to the clinic (visit five (5)) for a vaginal examination and additional activities.

The following questionnaires will be filled at baseline and end of study: Quality Of Life (QoL) and POP symptoms. Satisfaction and Ease Of Use questionnaires will be filled at the end of use (visit 5) Up to four (4) ProVATE device models will be tested in this study.
