Accidentally used a dulcolax...

Accidentally used a dulcolax suppository vaginally..will this cause harm ? Thought I was using a vaginal suppository...

Doctor's Assistant: How old are you? What symptoms are you having?

50. Was having yeast infection systems. I didn’t mean to use the wrong suppository!

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?

I just had a pap 2 weeks ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, everything was fine.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
