A therapeutic pessary is a medical device similar to the outer ring of a diaphragm. Therapeutic pessaries are used to support the uterus, vagina, bladder, or rectum. A pessary is most commonly used to treat prolapse of the uterus.
Advice & Tips:
After wearing my pessary for a couple of years straight it is like my guts have pushed back in. I was told by my gyn doctor that it was okay to leave my pessary in for weeks at a time and I started to do this as the tearing that I had at my vaginal opening made it extremely painful to take it out to clean There was also blood on the pessary when I was taking it out every day to clean it. When I took it out monthly there never was any blood or odor. I couldn't feel the pessary inside me and it somehow kept a rectocele and cytocele in place.
