How Long Does It Take For An Enema To Work & Other FAQs from Beginners
The popularity of a colon cleansing enema in recent years can be attributed to a long list of wellness benefits including all-natural and quick weight loss. Your friends may have been telling you about their positive experience after trying it out the first time.
If you’re a first timer, we are quite sure that you have some questions left unanswered about colon cleansing. In this article, we provide answers to some FAQs from beginners to help you decide if an enema is right for you.
Can an enema hurt you?
An enema brings sensations that you don’t get to feel or experience on a daily basis. Although this is the case, it is not a painful procedure altogether. First time users may feel a small amount if discomfort, but nothing that you cannot tolerate for a few minutes. To reduce discomfort or eliminate any type of pain, we highly recommend for you to evacuate your bowels before the session. This will relax the sphincter muscles. In addition, we recommend placing a small amount of lubricant at the tip of the tubing and at the anal opening. This will reduce discomfort and enable the smooth entry of the tube into the rectum.
How does an enema work for constipation?
There are two types of enema that you can use to treat constipation. Clear water enema is a cleansing enema that flushes out wastes that have accumulated in the colon. It is considered a shallow cleanse and may not be effective in clearing out the entire length of the gut.
Fleet enema is a solution created specifically for people who suffer from chronic constipation. It is a retention type enema where users are required to hold the Fleet solution for up to 15 minutes. This time allows the Fleet to work its action of drawing water from the large intestine.
How long does an enema last?
A simple, clear water colon cleanse lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. Since Fleet enema is a retention type enema, you will need to allow at least 30 minutes to perform the entire procedure.
