Commentary: Pessary – Don't Keep It a Secret

Apr 28, 2021

Whenever you want to get a four-year old's attention you lean down, cup your hand over their ear, and whisper, "I want to tell you a secret." So lean in close because I want to tell you a secret.  I don't know why this is a secret but it seems to be and I want to change that.  The secret is "pessary."  P E S S A R Y.  If you know what I'm talking about you don't need to listen to this message.  If you already know what a pessary is, please spread the word. My experience has been that my friends and relatives don't know what a pessary is.  That includes my 90-year old mother and my 60-plus year old friends.  You can think of this as a public service announcement.
