Enemas are scary for first-timers. We’ve all heard how uncomfortable they are, and so it’s natural to be nervous the first time. By following these tips, you can ensure that your first enema will be comfortable and positive.
- Keep an eye on your solution’s temperature. The ideal temp to use is 102 degrees. If it’s too cold, you could experience cramping; if it’s too hot, you could feel a burning sensation.
- Keep it simple the first time. Don’t try any complicated solutions—just stick with water.
- Don’t be discouraged. Most enema bags hold two quarts, which is a lot of liquid. If you can’t process all two quarts, don’t feel bad! This isn’t a competition. It’s an enema.
