How are urethral suppositories inserted?

While urethral suppositories are often less intimidating to men than injecting medicines into the penis, inserting them can still be a complex process and should be taught in the clinician's office before a man begins to use MUSE at home.

Each medication packet contains a special applicator.  This applicator contains a tiny medicated pellet, roughly the size of a grain of rice.

Before inserting the medication, the man should urinate. The pellet is designed to dissolve in the small amount of urine that remains in the urethra, so urinating first helps the penis absorb the medicine. 

Next, the man uses the applicator to insert the pellet approximately one inch into the opening at the top of the penis. To minimize leaking and promote absorption, the patient is also instructed to hold the penis upright and massage gently and to stand, sit or walk for 5 to 10 minutes while the medication is being absorbed and an erection develops.
