Every three months

My mother suffers from a genital prolapse and therefore she uses a pessary.
The pessary needs to be cleaned every three months.
This afternoon we visited the gynecologist in the hospital.
The gynecologist told my mother: “Everything looks good; your general practitioner can clean the pessary in three months.”

“Oh no,” my mother said. “I want you to clean my pessary.”
