Pessaries come in different shapes and sizes. They may be made of
rubber, plastic, or silicone-based material.
A pessary is tucked into your vagina. Your pessary will be carefully
fitted at your doctor's office. You may need to experiment with
different kinds of pessaries to find one that holds your pelvic organs in
position without causing discomfort.
Your doctor will teach you how to remove, clean, and
reinsert the pessary on a regular schedule. The cleaning schedule is determined
by the type of pelvic organ prolapse and the brand of pessary.
