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.

The Qufora® IrriSedo Mini system uses a small volume of water and therefore the time spent may be shorter. The Qufora® IrriSedo Cone, Balloon, Klick and Bed systems all use higher volumes of water, which can increase the time up to 30 minutes and occasionally longer dependent on your symptoms. Most of this time is waiting for the bowel to empty not actually doing the procedure.

Your healthcare professional will discuss this with you on your initial assessment.
