I'm about to start these tonight for the first time. How hard are these realistically to retain? Is it a conscious effort to keep your butt puckered or does the sensation of something could leak out at any moment pass? 60ml is not a lot of volume but it's still 60ml more than I'm used to holding in. I mean one inadvertent fart and its on the sheets.... Which I've already read to put down towels on.
Try to empty your bowels beforehand. Administer it on your left side and stay lying for 20-30 mins.
If you find it difficult to retain at first, don't worry about
it. As the inflammation comes down, and you get used to enemas, it gets easier.
If you lose it within the first 5-10 mins, you could always do another one.
After a few mins, it shouldn't be effort. If you had to consciously keep your butt puckered all night while you sleep, then that might be somewhat of a challenge!
