Use your pessaries the right way

This article illustrates the right way to use your pessaries.

​Use your pessaries the right way​

​​​​1​​​​​​​​Wash your hands with soap and water before using the pessary.​​

2​​Remove the wrapper from the pessary.​

​3​​​​​​​​Lie down and insert the pessary, tapered end first, into the vagina. Push gently but firmly high into the vagina.​​​​​
If two pessaries have been p​rescribed, do the same with the second one.​

Wash your hands with water and soap after each insertion.​
Continue using the pessary even during the menstrual period.​
​7​Avoid sexual intercourse during the period of treatment.​
​8​You may wish to wear a sanitary napkin to prevent this medication from staining y​our clothes.​

Store this medicine correctly.​​             

Store in a cool, dry place. Some pessaries need to ​​be stored in the refrigerator. Check the label for the correct storage condition.

​​Do not keep different types of medicines​ together in one container. Keep each medicine separately in its original labelled container.​

Keep the medicine out of the reach of children.

​Do not keep expired medicines or medicines that are no longer needed.
