All you need know about suppository?
Suppositories are small round or cone-shaped supplements designed to be inserted into the vagina, or anus. Once inside, the supplement melts or dissolves and is absorbed by the body.
A vaginal suppository is a type of medication or supplement designed to be inserted into and absorbed by the vagina. Sometimes the product is made to treat the vaginal area, and other times it’s just because the mucus membranes in the vagina are really good at quickly absorbing things so they get into your system faster.
What Are the Benefits of a Vaginal Suppository?
The vagina is one of the great wonders of the world, but it’s not always fun and games. Sometimes, it can experience some distracting and frustrating issues that can impact your day (and your sex life). Vaginal suppositories, like relief melts, can quickly provide targeted relief for problems like menstrual cramps and pelvic floor discomfort.
Many vaginal suppositories are designed to help vaginal dryness, too. Obviously, if you’re struggling with making natural lubrication (which can happen when you’re on certain types of birth control, breastfeeding, or during menopause), the vagina is where you need to focus.
Easy To Use
While the thought may seem a little weird at first, once you get the hang of them, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start using them sooner! Take intimacy suppositories, for example.
If you want to ease discomfort and enhance arousal pre-sex, all you need to do is insert one about 15 to 30 minutes beforehand. You’ll also feel that tension slipping away as it melts and absorbs.
Remember, practice makes perfect. What feels awkward at first will become second nature, especially if you have inserted a tampon before.
When you take a pill, you have to wait for it to hit your stomach, be absorbed into your bloodstream, and go where it needs to go.
With vaginal suppositories, you’re skipping that middle man. Think of it like topical medication — if you’re dealing with sore, achy joints, you’d rub a balm or salve directly on them, right?
Vaginal suppositories work the same way, only from the inside out.
Is there a difference between anal and vaginal use?
Many CBD suppositories on the market can be inserted anally or vaginally (note: not via the urethra).
Anal suppositories are generally used:
by people who have a Gastrointestinal (GI) condition
for hemorrhoids and rectal pain
as part of prep for anal sex
Vaginal suppositories are generally used:
for relief from vaginal-specific health conditions
to increase pleasure during vaginal penetration
Cannabinoids like CBD and THC don’t dissolve into water (they’re hydro-phobic). Instead, they dissolve more easily in oils (they’re fat-soluble). This is the reason that CBD & other hemp extracts CBC, CBG usually come in a fat like coconut oil, hemp seed oil, or butter — and that’s why Foria CBD Suppositories are made with cocoa butter.
When you insert a little rocket-shaped suppository and let the cocoa butter slowly melt, the tissues lining your rectum and anal canal become coated with cannabinoid-packed oil. From this oil, CBD slowly diffuse into and throughout the surrounding tissues.
Many people who try CBD suppositories rectally are surprised by how relaxed their pelvic muscles become and — more specifically — how much easier anal play becomes or how much their period cramps subside.
CBD desensitise pain receptors, which could help your nervous system relax and ease muscle contractions. Additionally, when skeletal muscles (ie pelvic muscles) are bathed in cannabinoids, they’re physically unable to hold as much tension. Some men report that rectal suppositories help to increase penile bloodflow, helping with the ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
Rectal? Or Vaginal?
As a note to those with vaginas: You might want to experiment to see if Foria suppositories are more effective at relieving pelvic issues when taken rectally versus vaginally. For period cramps, the back door is a great option if you’re currently experiencing a flow and have… obstacles in the way.
If you’re using suppositories for sexual enhancement & relaxation, be aware that oil-based suppositories and lubricants are not compatible with latex condoms.
