I'm the girl that buys the whole shelf at a time and the cashiers look at me like I must have some weird fetish. They're getting to the point that they aren't working anymore.
However, if you can find the bag enema (red) - I think I finally found one at Rite Aid you can use just water in that.
You could also try a glycerin suppository first (usually I hold it in for 30+ minutes).
For keeping the enemas "in" I try to hold it as long as possible. If there is no severe urge after a few minutes, I keep holding it. Don't walk around - it doesn't help the situation. I lay down on the bed with a towel under me or in the bathroom (there is a picture on the box with two poses). Massaging my abdomen helps in my situation. If I can't get them to work I'll opt for the water enema so I can utilize a lot more liquid to "wake up" my colon further up inside of me.
Hope this helps.
