Naturogest and vaginal pessaries prescribed for increasing the chances of conception. How are the pessaries used? Any side effects?

Hi Dr. Lundi, I ve just undergone an IUI . My doctor has prescribed naturogest 200 (micronised natural progesterone ) vaginal pessaries for me, as a follow up to the procedure, to increase chances of conception . I am supposed to use these pessaries twice a day. I just wanted to know whether these pessaries have to be inserted as close to the cervix as possible or just simple vaginal insertion is enough. Also, do these pessaries have any undesirable side effects? Thanks, Monica

Thanks for your query.
The pessaries should be inserted as high up in the vaginal canal as you can, because the chances of their being effective increases.
Also, it is a normal pregnancy support, commonly given after IUI, as progesterone supports the early pregnancy during development.
there are no gross side effects, you might feel vaginal itching and discomfort.
Take care.
