Which is better to relieve slight constipation due to eating too many vegetables, a hot water enema or a fleet enema?

Before self-treating

Constipation
Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days. Patients feel they are "constipated" when passing hard or small volume stool, or they feel full & bloated. Had an x-ray to show you're not blocked? We don't know if your gut is sluggish or your rectum works correctly--these can be tested for (sitz marker study & anal manometry, respectively). See a GI specialist.

what is soap in soap suds enema?

Irritant. Don't use

Kidney
Soap is soap. Soap suds enemas are highly irritating to the lining of the rectum and colon. Aside from causing a bowel movement can cause a whopping inflammation (colitis). Tap water enemas or store bought phosphate enemas are safer (check with MD, especially if history of heart, kidney, liver trouble). Oil retention enemas are lubricant

why are you performing it? If constipation, general recommendation: approximate more of a squatting position to facilitate easier passage of stool. Bring a small step in front of the commode, bring your feet up. Back in the wild, animals squat. Toilets are great, but not optimal position for defecation. Enemas bring diarrhea, irritation of the colon wall. Try more fiber in the diet.
