    Default Any experiences with cervical pessary?

    I had one put in yesterday (19 wks) as my cervix measured 2.5cm last week. I think this is a relatively new treatment as I can't find much on Dr Google!

    You mean a pessary to keep the cervix closed? Or was it a stitch?
    @meredithgrey might know

    No a pessary to keep it closed, not a stitch. Thanks

    I don't know why they call it a pessary, it's more like a silicone ring.

    Default Any experiences with cervical pessary?

    Did they mention anything about your uterus being prolapsed at all? I wore a silicone ring pessary with a knob after my bladder and bowel prolapsed from birth of #2. They use all shapes (even cubes which make me squirm).
    Perhaps your cervix is short so the pessary goes around it to support it more?

    Thanks meredith, I am taking progesterone so hopefully that will help.
    Yes it's effective like a stitch, but less invasive.

    Perhaps it's not in Aus yet, not sure.

    Yes exactly mmumm, it goes around the cervix to support it and can be used for prolapses too.
