Frequently Asked Questions

Should I eat before or after my rectal irrigation?

Many people find irrigating after their breakfast is preferable. This takes advantage of the gastro-colic response we get when we eat, which can help with a bowel movement.

However, if this is not possible then irrigate at a time that fits in with your routine. It is generally a good idea to stick to approximately the same time each day, so your bowel gets into a routine.
