Introduction: Vaginal pessaries are commonly used to manage pelvic organ prolapse. Pessaries are usually tolerated although some severe complications can occur in cases of negligence, including vesicovaginal and rectovaginal fistulas.

Case Presentation: This is a report of two cases of a neglected vaginal pessary and migration into the rectovaginal space to form a vaginal orifice. Based on examinations, no vaginal pessaries in both cases migrated into the rectum. These pessaries were removed by cutting and rotating movements. Finally, the two patients were discharged after surgery without any complications.

Conclusions: Neglected pessaries can lead to serious complications. Thus, patient education, local estrogen treatment, and careful follow-ups are important to prevent such complications.
