Constipation Sorted

Constipation Sorted

I eat a high fibre diet and take Laxido which helps but it still makes it very difficult to get started.
My solution, is anal/rectal irrigation using a bidet shower head (Enema). The tap and fittings can be purchased on ebay

Push the shower head against your anus and squirt some water in The lubricating effect is immediate, hardly any pushing. Do not squirt too much water in or you may stretch the rectal muscles in the long run.
The biggest cost is the plumber

if you are away from home buy an anal irrigation kit (it Enema kit)

Let me know if it works for you

Hmm - Having some difficulty following all that. Any chance of a video demonstration?


Hi @Jakeb,

I’d recommend you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day to avoid dehydration. Any fluid is suitable, including water, fruit juice, milk, tea, coffee and squashes.We have more information on ways to treat constipation here -

If the problem doesn’t go away, then I’d also recommend that you speak to your GP or nurse.

Best wishes,

just search ‘enema’ images
i do it sitting on the toilet
you could buy an enema kit v cheaply
i find using the bidet shower head more convenient and controllable than bottles or bags
