Colon Cleansing: Jesse: You have posed a great question which I commonly get asked in my practice. Enema's are typically not necessary to cleanse your colon. In fact, some over the counter colon cleanses may lead to a condition called Melanosis Coli which is seen during a Colonoscopy. Eating a nutritious high fiber diet will help with proper bowel function. Consult with your doctor about your specific condition.

See your GI: If colonoscopy was "clean" means both your colon was cleaned out of stool and clear to visualize well surface and it was clear of any abnormalities then you have rectal burning after giving yourself an enema then wonder if you injured yourself inappropriately administering the enema to yourself. Rectal burning can also occur from drinking dr pepper. Check back with GI who did your colonoscopy.

Water enema is safe.: Feel free to use a water enema to clean yourself before being intimate. Some people evacuate completely after each bowel movement and do not have any issue with "cleanliness" during anal sex. Other people may need the help of an enema beforehand. As you get to know your body better, you will be able to determine if enemas are optional for you.

Can you recommend enema type?

Go see ur Family Doc: Before jumping to enemas, look for other lifestyle options to manage/resolve constipation: increase fiber, fluids & physical activity. Failing that, consider stool softeners. If that doesn't work (or if taking opioids regularly), then consider laxatives. Regarding types of enemas, check out http://www. Atitesting.
