Hi, I am privileged to help you get more understanding about your current concern. A few questions first to clarify your concern:

1. do you place any type of lubricant, creme, etc. in the vagina on a regular basis? If so describe frequency of use.

2. How often is your pessary removed, cleaned & reinserted?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don,t insert any creme.
My pessary is removed and cleaned every 3 months
Expert:  Dr. Kala replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your response.

Do you do the cleaning? If so, then when was the last time a physican/practitioner examined our vagina?
