Canesten Pessary is a simple treatment for the cause of thrush that can relieve your symptoms within three days. If you’re suffering with pain, discomfort, and itching in your vagina caused by thrush, Canesten Pessary can provide fast relief.
Vaginal thrush is a yeast infection which almost all women experience at some time in their lives. It happens when the natural balance in your vagina is disturbed, meaning the natural yeast or fungus in your vagina can grow and cause infection. This is what leads to thrush.
Canesten Pessary contains an active ingredient called clotrimazole, which is an antifungal agent. This means it works from the inside to combat the yeast which causes infections such as vaginal thrush.
Remove the applicator from the packaging and pull out the plunger until it stops. Remove the pessary from it’s foil packaging and insert into the applicator, fix into place with a light twist. Insert the applicator as deep as is comfortable into your vagina, in the same way you would insert a tampon, then press the plunger until it stops. This inserts the Canesten Pessary into your vagina. Remove the applicator and dispose of it properly.
