How long should it take a yeast arrest suppository to absorb?
Q. I went to insert my second Yeast Arrest suppository in the evening I realized that the one from the morning was still there and had not really been absorbed. How long does it take for your body to absorb it?
A. If the first Yeast Arrest has not dissolved, then you do not need to insert a second one in the evening (although some women use 2 at a time depending on severity of symptoms). Some women’s bodies will break it down faster than others. It has to do with body heat, pH, and how active you are during the time it’s inside.
Typically, you’ll know it’s time to insert a new one when parts of the first one has come out into your pantyliner. Don’t be afraid to leave one in there. The capsules and contents do completely dissolve and come out into your liner over 12-24 hours. The vaginal walls are very efficient at sloughing off layers and keeping itself clean.
