Hi here..welcome to the forum!
The more you worry about
it....the worse can be. Just make sure you're not doing anything or moving about
after you've inserted the medication. Have a garbage bag/can beside your bed so that you don't have to get up to throw it into the garbage. Turn on the TV or read for the half hour after so that you're not totally bored if you can't get to sleep.
Check out the diagram and read the instructions....see which position works best for you. You might find using KY on the tip before inserting will be easier.
Once you start using them, you'll change your technique a bit to suit you.
You will have the urge to expell it....just lie still and white-knuckle through it...do panting, squealing, grunting, groaning...whatever it'll take for you to hold it in.
In the 19 years, there were 3 times I couldn't hold it for the entire night, once I had to run to the toilet to expel about
3 minutes after doing it.
Let us know how you make out.
