    My friend said she had it but I didn't think to ask what it was for. Maybe not everyone has to have it. I just wondered coz I've never heard of it before

    Yep it's a painkiller. I had it after Jack. I had an episiotamy and forceps delivery so was pretty battered and bruised. I was offered the tablet up my bum and because I was completley exhausted after a 42hr labour plus I was numb from the epidural and I can't take tablets oraly at the best of times i told them to go for it! Never needed any painkillers afterwards! Mind you I think I must heal pretty well because I had my gall bladder out 4 months later and didn't have pain relief after that either! x

    Its just a fast acting painkikller . I had it with my first and didnt notice until I read my notes it helped with the pain from stitches . I was offered it ith my second and they said it would be better as I may have vomited from shock and an oral apinkiller would be no use . They sometimes pop a finger up your bum too to make sure you havent torn right the way back .

    this is the fastest way of getting a painkiller (or whatever the purpose of the tablet) into your system. much quicker than if you took it orally.

    our midwife told us they do it with every single natural delivery....ha ha...they pop a finger up to check that there are no tears up your bum and while doing it, they pop a very string painkiller up there....

    my 2 friends who have just given birth said they didnt even notice but it said in their notes it had been done...so there you go :)

    I never had it, and I only had my LO last year, we had a text book birth but a retained placenta so maybe thats why.

    Oh dear. I'm not good with bums. Hope I'm too out of it to notice!! You learn something new everyday!!! My parents live in France and apparently they are very found of 'rectal' medication there...

    I had paracetomol up my bum after they stitched me up, apparantly it works quicker and lasts longer than orally, its to help with any pain or tenderness after, I think they normally give ibruprofen but I wasn't allowed that as I was on blood thinning injections, you barely notice them doing it esp after everything going on with the birth!!!

    I've not given birth before but I've had a painkiller up the bum and they work super quick - the relief you get is worth the few seconds of "administration" ;)

    I had it after natural birth - it was a Dicolfenac tablet (painkiller with anti-inflammatory) - they asked if I was happy to have it and I definitely was! It was brilliant, the midwife said that it is better than orally giving drugs as they last much longer and act quicker - im sure she said something about it lasting 16 hours but I can't be sure as was slightly distracted by my new baby!
