I have used 5 ASA enemas and suppositories as well as steroid foam. I did not find that the foam worked for me, and it was hard to use. Others here prefer the foam though. I used the enemas when I was badly flaring and essentially in bed all day for a few weeks. They felt very good, like a sitz bath, but they are tricky. You have to feel confident in your muscles to keep the liquid in for a while and then make it to the bathroom to get rid of it! I'm not sure I would like to use them regularly.
I use the suppositories all the time. I find them effective, and easy to use. I hold one under the cold tap for a second and it goes in fairly easily. The only thing is that if you have to go to the bathroom before they have been in and dissolved a bit then the product is quite sticky. It takes a bit of clean up if it gets on the toilet seat or side of the toilet!
