So You’ve Been Prescribed A Vaginal Suppository? Here’s Why
So, how do you actually
insert a suppository? Generally, you use a plastic applicator, similar to
inserting a tampon. You can either stand up or lie down, whichever is more comfortable for you. You’ll want to wash your hands before and after, and if the applicator is reusable, you’ll want to wash that, too. Doctors may recommend you take the suppository before going to bed, because lying down can reduce leaking.
