Caring for Your Pessary

How do I care for my vaginal pessary?

It's important that you follow your doctor's instructions about caring for your pessary. Most pessaries can be worn for many days to weeks at a time before they have to be taken out and cleaned with simple soap and water.

Cleaning Your Pessary

You may be able to take out, clean and reinsert your pessary yourself, or your doctor may want you to come into the office so he or she can do it. Be sure to keep your check-up appointments and clean the pessary as your doctor tells you.
