Three words for you… WASH YOUR HANDS.

You’ve reached a new low…literally. You’ve done a lot of strange things to try to become pregnant but inserting a pill into your vaginal cavity might be a new all time low. Perhaps you’re familiar with this furry location? You might have explored it once or twice while you were looking for your cervix to find out if you were ovulating. Giving yourself an injection in your stomach in a public place is one thing but inserting a vaginal suppository is a different territory. Leg on toilet, push buttocks to an upright position, extend pelvic muscles, grasp suppository with fingers and insert, don’t touch door handle. “Sorry, I took so long in the toilet, gentlemen, but those vaginal suppositories can be quick tricky! Did I miss hearing the lunch specials?”

And don’t even think about coughing, laughing, talking or sitting down too fast. Those suppository can pop right out and leave a little embarrassment on the floor. “Those waiters must have dropped some liquid on the floor. Let’s switch tables immediately!” Vaginal suppository meet your new best friend: Ms. Pantie liner.

Good advice: It’s probably best not to shake hands with any woman in childbearing years.

    I still want to know how those teeny tiny Estrace pills manage to stay shoved up in there. It will always remain a medical mystery to me.

    suppositories are easier than shots, IMHO. but pretty gross. I was paranoid that I would leave the pill container in the work restroom…with my name and instructions printed on it!
