I took the pessaries for the first 13 weeks of my last pregnancy (DD now nearly 3) and my current pregnancy (nearly 33 weeks). DD completely fine and current baby no identified issues. In my case they literally saved my babies lives as prior to having the pessaries - I had 4 mc as my body couldn't carry a pregnancy without the extra support. For me they have been a miracle that have allowed me to have children albeit alittle gross at times (need to wear a panty liner!! ;-)

Progesterone is a hormone that your body naturally produces. Don't worry.

I took them for the first 13 weeks too, for both my DD who is now 2 and for this pregnancy (twins)

I had IVF and its a natural hormone that helps support your pregnancy, so I wouldn't panic- step away from google grin or you will drive yourself crazy.

Many women take them and are completely fine.

Good luck.
