BMJ Group Medical Reference
An enema is a liquid or drug that's put into your back passage. The treatment is used to soften your stools and clean out your bowel.
We couldn't find any good-quality studies that looked at enemas for constipation that lasts a long time.
But if your bowel is blocked and laxatives haven't helped you, you might need to go to hospital for an enema.
An enema is liquid that is poured into the rectum to clean it out. Many people find it uncomfortable and embarrassing, but it helps a doctor to see the inside of the bowels.
