(a) Some medications come as a pre-filled applicator (which means that the pessary is already pre-inserted into the applicator).
(b) Others may have a separate applicator, where you will need to insert the pessary into the end of the applicator.
(c) Otherwise if there is no applicator supplied, you can insert the pessaries using your fingers.
Note: During pregnancy, the pessary should be inserted without using an applicator.
