...I tried my first Dr. Bronner's Peppermint enema....After taking in about the first cup I had the strong urge to expel.
Great that you finally tried an SSE! An SSE is used to induce defecation for treating constipation or to clear the bowels before a procedure. So, your reaction was just what a soap suds enema is meant to do!
... I was able to take the rest of this 2 qt enema- no cramps but pretty much got on the toilet straight away after the last gurgle.
Nursing textbooks instruct holding for 5 to 15 minutes or until the urge for defecation is great, but they also instruct less than 2 quarts to be given. You had "urge for defecation is great" right away!
...But what I really liked was expelling the peppermint enema. It did produce kind of a cool feeling on my anus.
Yes, it's scrumptious, IMHO!
...So I am a new fan of this type of enema- it took a while but I finally got to my first SSE and I liked it.
