I made an error in applying treatment pessaries. Nurses refuse to acknowledge the visible complications.

I was prescribed Vagical in a form of pessaries (propylene glycol).

The method of application advised to rinse the pessary with water before insertion. On the 3rd out of 4th pessaries I ommitted to rinse them with water. It didn't absorb the way other 2 did: it broke apart and active substance has spread in the way it shouldn't (powder) I am afraid the remnants of polyoxyethylene glycol havent fully dissolved in my vagina and thus have caused the development of myscosis. HERE IS MY WORRY - my nurse has ignored my explanation and continues to issue me with pills to treat mycosis only. I am afraid that the wrongly applied glycol is is struggling to exit my system.

Im worried that it will continue to weaken the flora and continually expose my insides to infections.

How best to prove the existence of glycol in my body to my nurses who chose to belittle this as a ground to worry? Is there any way to get rid of it?

The best way to take Cyclogest (progesterone) pessaries

We've been trying for 2.5 years and I'm on my third IVF treatment at the moment (1 ectopic, 1 unsuccessful).

For all three cycles I was prescribed Cyclogest pessaries. My clinic recommends taking them vaginally, but after experiencing some minor spotting, they told me you can take them rectally (up your bum) and it works just as well.

This sounds weird and gross, but it is SO MUCH BETTER. No irritation anymore and it doesn't slime out so no gross panties. Obviously check with your doctor or nurse, but it should be just as effective. It's the most useful thing I've learnt about IVF that nobody tells you about.

Are 1-day pessary yeast infection treatments worth it?

I have extremely sensitive skin, and I’m pretty prone to infections, sadly. After about a year of having no yeast or bladder infections, I had a UTI and now a yeast infection from the antibiotics (at least I think anyway).

My doctor knows about this issue and has always just steered me in the direction of over the counter medicine for the yeast infection, because it’s quite mild but still obviously unpleasant.

I have used insertable meds’ before, it was a 4 day treatment I believe and it did work. I’m wondering, are the 1 day dosages worth the try?

It’s been like 3 days of this infection now and it’s just so uncomfortable I don’t even wanna leave the house. My doctor didn’t really recommend any over the counter meds in specific apart from a topical cream, but it hasn’t offered much relief so he suggested looking into a pessary.

Anyway, are the 1-day yeast infection pessaries any good?

Would econzole Pessaries cause bleeding?

2 days ago I began taking econzole (Gyno-peravl) Pessaries to treat a yeast infection as well as using the cream that came in the box.

Now my discharge is pink/red-ish so it seems as if I’m bleeding. I don’t think this is my period as I take birth control which stops my period unless I stop taking the pills (which I haven’t, I take them everyday and have for 2 years and haven’t had this happen when I’m not on my 7 day break)

I’m wondering, would this medication somehow cause bleeding/spotting or is it most likely my period?

Anyone else experienced Spotting on progesterone pessaries?

I’m 5weeks 2 days pregnant and yesterday and this morning have been experiencing pink spotting. My clinic says it is probably just the progesterone pessaries (cyclogest) irritating my cervix. I’m really anxious that it’s a miscarriage. Has anyone else experienced pink spotting that’s just turned out to be irritation of the cervix linked to pessaries? I’ve been using them for almost a month now. Oh I’m also getting stabby pains in my vagina.... im wondering if this is another sign it’s my cervix and nothing to do with the actual pregnancy πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I’ve also noticed the lumps of pessary that fall out often have darker bits of blood on them.

When did you stop progesterone pessaries?

I had an unmedicated FET that was successful, hurrah. Because it was natural cycle, I didn't have any hormones, but asked the consultant who did the transfer whether I should do progesterone (cyclogest) pessaries and she said I could if I wanted to, so I did. I suppose because it's supplementary, I can stop them at any time, but wondering what other people's experiences are. My clinic told me I could stop them now, but I somehow feel nervous about that, and it sounds like 8 weeks is on the earlier side of stopping, and some clinics have you continue up to 12 weeks?

Birth announcement/pessary induction

I posted 11 days ago to say I was to be induced last Sunday due to possible pre-eclampsia. Here's the birth update!

I arrived at the hospital at 10am and was given the 24hr pessary. That didn't work so I was told to leave it another 8 hrs to see if that would have an effect. 6 hours later I lost part of my plug and with it the pessary. Getting regular contractions but pain free. They told me I was showing no signs of labour so the next step was to break my waters. In order to do that, I needed a bed in the labour ward.

Wednesday morning I finally get the news that they have a bed for me. By lunch time I am prepped and ready with an IV cannula, gown and bed ready for the doctor to break my waters. That was an ordeal in itself because my baby was hand first and my cervix was high but I was already 3cm!

I was put on the hormone drip, labour kicked in around 3-4 by 6 I think I was 4cm then 45 minutes 5cm, then 10 minutes 7cm and he was born at 7:16pm.

Established labour : 1 hour and 22 minutes and only one suture!

My beautiful baby boy George was born on the 25th July weighing 8lb 2oz and thankfully head first!

2nd month on progesterone pessaries and VERY nauseous this time...

Hello, this is my second month on progesterone pessaries, last month I miscarried but also I really did not think I was pregnant so I gave them up around 9 dpo and on 15 dpo when I realized I was pregnant I quickly picked them back up. I am currently in the 2ww again and have been SO nauseous for the last three days.

Could my reaction to the pessaries fluctuate month to month? Why am I so sick this time? Could I put all the blame on the pessaries or could the nausea be a good sign that I caught a good one? Thank you in advance.

Did anyone had pessary??? How long did you go with it?? Did it help your short cervix??? Any side effects??

Cervix update and question about a pessary

I finally spoke to my doctor today, as she got the report from the hospital. The measurement she gave me from the report was 1.3cm when I should be at or above 2.5 - I can't figure out why I'm the only one panicking here, because that seems pretty terrible to me. She reiterated that bed rest will likely not help and will probably only serve to make me depressed and prone to blood clots, and that she totally understand the specific documentation my school district is asking for in terms of reducing my activity. Hearing it all from her made me feel a lot better this morning. No documentation in hand yet, but doc said she was going to call the hospital and coordinate with them on language she could use in a doctor's note.

She also brought up the possibility of placing a pessary depending on how things go at my next ultrasound next Thursday. Supposedly this is a silicone ring that will hold my cervix shut similar to how a cerclage would, but it's 1) less painful to put in, 2) less risky, and 3) not an invasive surgical procedure (doc could do it herself right in the office). Does anyone have experience with this? /u/helenblueskies - any advice? Looking up some recent studies this seems like an awesome solution. The doctor called it "old-school" but indicated that it could also help.
