The purpose of this pilot study is to perform a procedure to evaluate the safety of the placement of a new device (known as the VFIX device).
In this study, the surgeon will not use the actual V-Fix device. Instead, the surgeon will use a routine operating room instrument, which is similar to the size and shape of the V-Fix device to mimic the placement of the VFIX device by using the routine operating room instrument to push the top of your vagina towards the ligament.
