(b) Others may have a separate applicator, where you will need to insert the pessary into the end of the applicator.
(c) If no applicator is supplied, you can insert the pessaries using your fingers.
Note: During pregnancy, the pessary should be inserted without using an applicator.
3. Lie on your back with your knees bent and legs slightly apart.
Gently insert the pessary (pointed end first) or applicator into the vagina, as far as comfortably possible.
If using an applicator, push the plunger until it stops to release the pessary into the vagina.Then, remove the applicator from the vagina.
