I give myself enemas at least 4 times a week! I tend to expell them into an adult diaper! Is this safe?

I give myself enemas at least 4 times a week! I tend to expell them into an adult diaper! Is this safe?

Enemas: The only medical risk I can think of with frequent enemas is getting trauma to the lining of the rectum and then getting an infection from the irritated skin. I worry about water overload as well with such frequent introduction of water with the enema. As a physician I am concerned enough that maybe you should respond with the reason you are doing this so often...

No endorsements: Healthtap doctors cannot endorse specific products. Often, companies will send you samples of their product if you request them. Just e-mail or write to them. Then try out a few different ones and see which one works best for your particular needs. Much less expensive way to find out which one is best -for you!

What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?

What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?

Desire for care: Though I certainly may be wrong in your situation, it seems to me that your wearing a diaper and sucking on a pacifier is probably not so much a fetish as an expression of your desire for someone to care for you like a baby, providing all your needs. Psychotherapy may be worth your consideration.
