In brief: Here's some...

Did you see something leaking out? To see is to believe.
Largely, a suppository of this nature should melt for absorption in 2-3 hours. But nowadays, do HPT in a week after missing period & repeat it in a week if the first test was (-) or still in doubt; HPT is easy to get & use with high accuracy and reliability so to relieve a great stress for all sexually active women.

In brief: Don't

Worry. Some may leak but it isn't an issue.
You should be stopping the promethium soon anyway as the baby takes over its own progesterone production. Your doc should talk to you about that
