    There are 3 pages of these guidelines you can download as needed. The biggies though are try to do your BP after a warm meal or snack that contains some fat and drink a hot liquid with it or while doing your BP. Then do a short round of dig stim, insert suppository and give it time to work and drink a hot beverage like coffee while waiting. The guideline should explain how to do digital stim properly.
