In brief: Yes

There are many shapes of pessaries and each shape comes in multiple sizes.
They are typically bigger looking than one would expect. Fitting a pessary is a trial and error approach to find the right shape and size to provide support. There are some types of prolapse that are not adequately corrected with any pessary.
