can you advise please. last september I was prescribed ortho-gynest

Resolved Question:

can you advise please. last september I was prescribed ortho-gynest pessaries for atrophic vaginitis, I used these as prescribed but slowly decreased the frequency to every 10 days, then a month ago I forgot and missed taking a pessary for 18 days, since then i noticed just once a very slight brownish discharge would this be due to the atrohia returning and should i use the pessary more frequently
