The Sawm (fasting) becomes invalid by inserting suppositories in anus or vagina. Therefore, one should adopt any other means of medication or he or she should do it in nights:

أو أدخل أصبعہ الیابسۃ فی دبرہ أو فرجھا ولو مبتلۃ فسد، وقال فی موضع آخر أو احتقن أو استعط الخ قضی (الشامی: ط زکریا: 3/369 و 376)

Allah knows Best!
