Is enema safe?
Hello, I have seen a video on youtube which was related to the treatment of constipation. In that video, an enema was suggested to treat constipation. An enema is the introduction of a liquid through the anus into the large intestine. Enema’s liquid softens impacted stool, while the enema nozzle loosens the rectum. That combination will stimulate a large bowel movement. Should I give it a try? Is enema safe?
@wy Hello, yes it is safe to use an enema but it should be used only under the prescription of the doctor. Enemas can be quite effective, but there is a risk of severe adverse effects such as metabolic derangement or perforation, damage to the rectum and anus, and cause infection, hypothermia, and nausea. There are different enemas and they all work differently. Do not use an enema if you have Congestive heart failure, severe kidney disease, Active inflammatory disease, and Rectal obstruction. Use enema only when it is directed by the healthcare provider. Thanks!
