What is an Enema?
If the stomach becomes distended and you have not had a bowel movement in several days, you are likely constipated and need the assistance of an enema to clear your bowels. Constipation can be very painful if not treated right away. If you are to get an enema in the hospital after a recent surgery or childbirth, it will be performed by a nurse. The enema is given by a tube that delivers liquid into the large intestine through the rectum. This solution helps to soften the stool making it easier to pass the waste out of the rectum. Enemas can also be performed in the comfort of your own home with products like the Fleet Mineral Oil Enema.
Why Might I Need an Enema?
- Constipation: One of the most common gastrointestinal conditions is constipation. If you do not eat enough fiber, drink plenty of water, or get daily exercise, you might become constipated. The instability to pass normal bowel movements for several days can be quite painful and an enema can provide the relief needed.
- Medical Examinations: An Enema works to clear the colon prior to a medical exam such as a colonoscopy. The doctor performing the colonoscopy can better detect polyps and colon cancer if the intestines are free from any fecal matter.
