I had really bad experiences as a six year old girl with suppositories. They had hurt going in and caused cramps. I would really like to avoid having to experience anything like that again. It may seem stupid, because I'm 19 years old now, but those things still scare me! I've taken some laxatives but they haven't worked. This is day two and I'm miserable. Is there anything else I could try? If not, is there anything I can do to make the suppository less painful going in? Thanks in advance!
Maybe rather than use a suppository you might prefer a similar medication in a small enema tube; just cut the sealed end off with scissors and away you go. It is small with a long skinny nozzle you will want a toilet close by soon enough.
You could by oral chemical (coloxyl is an excellent stool softener) or natural laxatives (metamucil is a great gentle one that works over about 8 hours) at the supermarket with good effect; usually next to the vitamins section. You really don't want go into the industrial strength ones yet.
