Does an enema hurt?
During an enema fluid is introduced into the colon by way of the rectum. It is recommended by holistic experts to people who suffer from chronic constipation. The most common solutions used for home enemas are as follows:
- Distilled water
- Oil-based solutions
- Saline solution
When enema is administered using the right equipment and solution, it is a rather painless procedure. You will feel the urge to evacuate the bowels at some point, but this should not be a cause for alarm.
Once the water enters the colon it will take a few minutes before you feel the urge to defecate. A single enema session will usually take 15 minutes. Retention enema usually takes 45 to 60 minutes to complete. In this technique, you will need to hold the solution no more than 15 minutes before evacuation of bowels.
If there are no bowel movements after an enema, call your doctor immediately.
