Use the bathroom prior to inserting the medicine. To open, gently peel the fiat plastic tabs apart at the top of the package where the pointy end is and remove the suppository.
If possible, create a peaceful environment for yourself minimizing distractions, harsh light, stimulation and sound. Lay on your back in a comfortable position and insert the suppository as far in and close to your cervix as possible using your finger or a tampon applicator. If you don't want to lay down, many women have found that standing with their knees slightly bent is a very comfortable and easy way to insert the suppository. You can also try putting a foot up on the tub or toilet seat.
Placing a cushion under your buttocks will allow the medicine to absorb more deeply into your body. This yin yoga position can also help release tension. Relax in this position for 10 - 20 minutes or longer if you are comfortable and have time. Full activation takes approximately 15-30 minutes.
As the suppository melts, the active ingredients of the medicine are absorbed and some of the cocoa butter might exit your body. This is normal. Using a panty liner is recommended.
If you are getting ready in the morning, allow yourself some extra time for this. We want you to start the day relaxed and pain free.
