Why the need?: I can't say I could tell you what it would feel like. Myself and many other naturopaths and mds that specialize in detox feel enemas are often unnecessary. Learn how to potentiate the capacity of your liver to detoxify (mthfr and other gene mutations limit this - you may need high doses of activated folate). Lots of fiber will help toxins exit your body without aggressive enemas. ...Read more
Fleet: Plain or mineral oil is ok. However, you need to be examined to determine the cause of your recent constipation, with a colonoscopy if you haven't had one in the past few years.

I'm gonna have anal sex tomorrow. I bought two enemas. Should I take one tonight and the other tomorrow morning?
Enema use: Your colon usually keeps the rectal vault clear of feces until you are ready to make a bowel movement. Taking an enema the night before is probably not helpful because overnight, more stool may move into the rectum. It is usually sufficient to perform a single enema an hour or two before you want to be empty. ...Read more
I have not had s problem moving my bowels, until two days ago. I am regular with normal stools. In a few instances, I have difficulty eliminating. Today, after an enema I passed hard pebble like stool. Not normal amount. Thisnis rare.?
Bowel change: Since this is a change in your usual bowel pattern, it shouldn't be ignored and a colonoscopy may be in order. Your stools suggest recent constipation and if increasing fluid intake and fiber or Metamucil in your daily diet doesn't get you back to normal regularity, it's important to be evaluated by a gastroenterologist. If you haven't had a screening colonoscopy, this is a good time to get one. ...Read more

I toke two laxative two night ago an yesterday I felt sick so did a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) an it only got small amount out I stay constipated?
Constipation: Not sure what laxative you used. Normally, I would recommend the patient to have adequate hydration, stay active with exercising, eat high fiber diet. In addition, add fiber supplement such as citrucel (one table spoon in 8 oz of water daily). If the above is not improved, add MiraLAX (otc, one table spoon in 8 oz of water, daily to bid). Other agents are linzess, amitiza (lubiprostone). Work close with drs. ...Read more
My mom hasn't had a bowel movement for 5 days. After 3 enemas, she passed two marble sized pieces that were hard as a rock. Emergency?
THD surgery tomorrow and prep calls for two fleet enemas 2 hrs before surgery. Do I do one after another or one have a bowel movement and then another?
They shouldn't: Two enemas should not have a side effect of frequent bowel movements for a week. It sounds like something else is going on. If you changed your gut flora with the enemas, you might have an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria which is causing and perpetuating the problem. Consider some probiotics to help the problem. ...Read more

I have been constipated for awhile now so today I used three enemas separately within the same hour with little results. I am now readingthisisnotsafe?
Fleet enema: It will not hurt to do that this time, but it is not a good idea to become dependent on needing enemas regularly. Basic bowel care such as getting lots of fiber and lots of fluids is the initial step. If you have chronic problems with constipation, see your doctor or consider a consult here. Good luck. ...Read more

My body holds stool, so about once a week (or 2) I give myself an enema after a movement. The problem is that it takes several hours for it to be done?
Hello, I had a barium enema exam through my rectum yesterday at 10:00 AM. After the exam I noticed that I didn't have an urge to urinate for hours.
Drank over half a bottle of Mag Citrate. 8 hours later, nothing! Tried an enema but it was hard to insert due to hemorrhoid so I couldn't use it. ER?
I took my methadone about an hour ago, it was liquid form and it was 60 mg. If I use a saline enema now, will it drain my methadone from my stomach?
You have quite a: Problem, and I don't know what you really want to do. An enema only takes out what is in your rectum or the end of your colon. This is more than 25 feet away from the Methadone in your stomach. Why would you want to remove it from your body. Whatever your reason, it is a really really bad plan. You are on Methadone because you have had major drug problems, and you are making equally bad moves now. ...Read more
