I know i need a pessary to extra support during explosive

Customer Question

I know i need a pessary to extra support during explosive sports but my gyn can only book me in for an appointment mid aug and then it takes a month to order the pessary. I want to know if I can buy online without a prescription.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: no medications. i'm very healthy. 6mths post partum I've seen the midwives and physio regarding it. I'm doing all the exercises and was suggested by physio and approved y midwives to be fitted to have a pessary just for sport
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: i'm a physiologist and my husband is a doctor we know the risks

I understand your concerns. Yes, you can buy a pessary online. Websites like amazon or CVS sell them. They are safe and easy to use. Try to combine kegel exercises for better results. Please rate my answer

Let me know if you have any other questions.
