Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to carry out rectal irrigation?

Rectal irrigation timings can vary depending on your symptoms and the type of product you use. It can take slightly longer when you first start rectal irrigation until you get used to using the system and establish a bowel routine.

Low Volume – Qufora IrriSedo MiniGo/MiniGo Flex/Mini
These systems use a small volume of water and can have quick results.

High Volume – Qufora IrriSedo Flow/Klick/Cone/Balloon/Bed
These systems use larger volumes of water and can increase the time up to 30 minutes (occasionally longer) dependent on your symptoms.

Most of this time is waiting for the bowel to empty not actually doing the procedure. Once you have established a routine the time may decrease. Your healthcare professional should discuss this with you on your initial assessment.
