Canesten Thrush Pessary PIL

Directions

1. Remove the applicator from the packaging. Pull out the plunger A
until it stops. Remove the pessary from the foil blister pack and place
firmly into the applicator B.

2. To fit the pessary into the applicator, the holder of the applicator
needs to be squeezed lightly at both sides. The pessary fits tightly into
the applicator and needs to be squeezed into the holder to about 1cm.

3. Carefully put the applicator as deep as is comfortable into the vagina
(this is easiest when lying on your back with your knees bent up).
Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the plunger until it stops so
that the pessary is deposited into the vagina.
