The size of the pessary and the type of pessary most suited for her would depend on examination.

By examining her she would be able to determine the size that would be suited to her.

Here is an article, which contains an image that will guide on how to calculate the pessary size:

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
