HOW OFTEN SHOULD I IRRIGATE?

Sometimes the bowel gets into a routine easily but for others it may require some modification e.g. your bowel medication etc. That’s why many healthcare professionals advise irrigating every day for at least the first three months.

Some people may have constipation symptoms and others may have faecal incontinence and require a daily routine initially and review over time what works best.

However, once a regime is set it is advisable not to change this too regularly as already mentioned the bowel gets into a routine which therefore needs maintained for effective results.

Your Healthcare Professional will assess you and advise on this during your visit. Any queries about making changes should always be directed through your Healthcare Professional.
