I am new to this site. I am 29 yrs old and in my 34th week of pregnancy now, today I have been to the Dr. for routine checkup. She has prescribed a medicine Fheal Pessary tablets (which are white waxy and oval in shape). and have asked me to insert it in the vagina for next 6 nights. Most probably I am going to have a normal delivery as what she says. My question is why am I suggested to have these tablets when I dont have any irritation/ vaginal thrush? (as what I could read from the websites these tablets are used to treat). Neither I have High BP/Diabetes.
No she didnt even looked at that part of the body, she just pressed that area hard through my pajama. Today I called her to ask why she has given me these pessaries, she replied since I am going to have normal delivery so in order to avoid any infection to the baby , when he/she will pass through that region, she has prescribed them.
I am still looking over the internet if there are any sideeffects or if its harmful for the baby
