I squeeze out the air before I put it in. The air always gets to me and makes me want to expel. Also, if I am in a bad flare, I try to take my time squeezing it in(I usually just want to get it over with so I just squeeze it really fast), so you might want to try slowing it down a bit. I do lay on my left side and once it is all in, I don't move a muscle until the urge to expel passes(usually only around a few min. for me now). Good luck! They do work wonders for me. Though now I am on Asacol and haven't needed any for months.
