Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

So are you asking why are you feeling the pain ?


Customer: replied 6 months ago.
initially after my second visit for treatment at the hospital, I took advice & had a change of pessary which didn't help & went back & had another fitted which also caused discomfort,,today I went again & decided to have it removed.

Will it help to give me a rest, could I be allergic to these devices?

Thanks for the details

It seems that the previous ones were not fitting the exact size

Second as can be expected it is a foreign body reaction causing such symptoms

I think that you should take some anti-inflammatory for few days

Sometimes it settles after few days and you might not require to change it once more

Please do let me know if you have any other question
