enema solution not going in?!

Question: Enema solution not going in?
I just performed an at home enema, and the solution would not go in. Does it take a while for it to all go into the anus? 10 mins. It didn't seem to be going in at all, but I did get some when I went to the bathroom. Sorry for the graphics

I have done this before, and yes it does take time. They actually recommend that you keep your behind elevated for several minutes after you use the enema. Try laying on the floor (leaning on your elbows with your head down) and putting your fanny in the air. It's a funny position to hold for a bit, but it works. Good luck! ;) haha.

Oh, and just in case you didn't know.. You do have to SQUEEZE the bottle! If there's someone that you're not too embarrassed to ask, it's easier to get someone to squeeze it for you. >.<

LOL and yes, Kayla has it correct in that you need to be butt up for about 10-20 minutes after inserting and squeezing the enema solution in. Get a magazine or portable DVD to pass the time without thinking about it. The more you think about it, you will be more likely to have your muscles all contracted and works opposite what you are trying to accomplish. You need to be relaxing. You can also consider eating some fruit, veggies, flaxseed, prunes, etc. that are known to produce the effects you need. Drink lots of water or Gatorade too, you need to stay hydrated.

If you were using a bag enema several things could cause this.
1. You failed to purge the air from the hose.
2. You clogged the nozzle with poop when you stuck it in your rectum.
3. You don't have the bag hanging high enough it should be where the bottom of the bag is 12" - 18" above your anus, I take mine laying on the bathroom floor with the bag hanging from the doorknob.
4. It was flowing albeit slowly. This is good as you can get more in you with less cramping.

If it is a disposable fleet bottle, you do need to squeeze the bottle.
