    I need a bit of advice! Ive been prescribed the pessary and cream by my doctor but have read that you don't use the applicator to insert it whilst pregnant and you're supposed to use your finger! So how far do I push it up there? I don't want to go too far! Haha!

    I put 2-3" of it inside me. If you have any pantie-liners, I'd suggest you wear one. The chalk which comes out stained my knickers.

    My doctor told me absolutely no applicator always use a finger when pregnant because it can irritate the vaginal walls which are more sensitive during pregnancy and cause spotting that would just scare you and the applicator is too long. I was told no father in then my index finger.

    I have been prescribed the internal cream which comes in an applicator 3 times over past couple of months which doc said is okay to use. The cream is inside the applicator so you have to use the applicator and so I use the applicator for pessary as I would find none applicator a nightmare.
