    I have found that the leakage from the suppository is very unpleasant, and the odor of the suppository repulsive. I also have gas and have to wear a super maxi pad to make sure it doesn't get on my clothes or underwear (this to avoid others smelling me). I'm trying to tough it out for the month prescribed, but it won't be easy.

My symptoms have virtually disappeared with no side effects now, other than a littl ... Show Full Comment
