The doc is prescribing me a pessary for my yeast infection, (told me on the phone cos i've tried everything else n it wont go away so he told me he'll do that and that to pick up the prescribition at 4pm.) However I've heard pessaries SOFTEN the cervix? Is this true?!? Is it safe to use? :/ I want the yeast infection to bugger off as i've had it for nearly a month but i don't want to soften my cervix.
