Take back your confidence by taking control of your bowels

Sound Familiar?

  • Urgency: Sudden, strong urge to have a bowel movement
  • Accidents: Can’t make it in time
  • Passive soiling: Leaking stool without knowing it
  • Incomplete emptying: Remaining stool leaks out later
  • Staining in undergarments
  • Constantly going to the bathroom

Why does this happen to women?

Bowel control issues affect 1 out of 11 adult women1. The pelvic muscles that support your bladder, rectum and uterus can become damaged—often through pregnancy or childbirth. This sometimes causes loss of bowel control. Gastrointestinal conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome can also lead to bowel control issues.

You may have tried or heard about these ways to regain bowel control:

  • Changing diet, using medications and wearing protection.
  • Performing pelvic floor physical therapy.
  • Undergoing a surgical solution such as sphincter repair or sacral nerve stimulation.
  • Or you may opt for the Eclipse System, a non-surgical, vaginal insert clinically proven to reduce the frequency of bowel accidents, or even eliminate them altogether.

Good news:
Eclipse can be used as a stand-alone therapy, or alongside other therapies to further enhance treatment effectiveness².

Suddenly you can be yourself again with Eclipse.

“It has helped my life immeasurably. I am back to being ME!”


No surgery. No drugs. Just a simple solution

The Eclipse System is a vaginal insert that uses your body’s anatomy to prevent accidents. The insert is placed in the same location as a tampon or a diaphragm by the user, and can be inserted or removed when wanted. A well-fit insert will be comfortable for almost all women. Women who were successfully fit with Eclipse by a medical professional in a 1-month study overwhelmingly reported comfort wearing the insert3. In the same study, 86% of women reported treatment success at 1-month with 41% reporting zero accidents. The average number of reported episodes decreased from 11.6 to 2.1 over a 2-week period of time3.


Designed to give you control

A detachable and discreet pump is used to inflate and deflate a balloon on the insert. The balloon is designed to control your rectum and prevent stool from passing when you’re not ready for it. When you’re ready to have a bowel movement, simply deflate the balloon. Once you have finished your bowel movement, inflate the balloon again and go on your way. This design allows you to actively control your bowels.


Individual comfort that women would recommend to their friends

98% of them would recommend it to a friend3

In a clinical study, 96% of women who were successfully fit with an Eclipse reported that it was comfortable, or that they couldn’t even feel it, after completing a 1-month study3. 98% of these women also reported that they would recommend Eclipse to a friend3. In a longer term study, 84% of patients said Eclipse was effective at 3 months4. For those patients continuing in this study out to 12 months, 94% said Eclipse was effective with 46% reporting zero events4.

If you are experiencing bowel control symptoms, talk about it with your physician.

You are not alone.

Over 10 million women1,5 in the U.S. suffer from a loss of bowel control with nearly 70% remaining silent6.

Don’t let embarrassment, belief that it’s a natural part of aging or assume no treatments exist stop you from speaking up.

Your doctor can help you navigate therapy options that are right for you which may include the Eclipse System for Bowel Control
