When I was 9, our family doctor came over becuase I had a stomach ache and flu. He pressed on my stomach, told Mom I needed an enema and asked if she had the equipment. She had never given me one and asked the doctor to help her. I didn't know what to expect. I got the enema from bed with the doctor there and housekeeper holding the bag up. If I weren't so clueless I'd have had time to be embarrassed. When the bag was empty, the nozzle and tubing remained for a time as everybody told me to hold it as long as I could. This happened twice and made mom an enema convert. She got a lot of practice after the doctor instructed and she didn't need his advice to decide I needed them. Now, in my 60's, very healthy and taking my enemas as I need them.

My doctor informed my mother by telephone to prepare an enema for me. I grew up when you did and enemas were a prescription for most of what ailed us. They seem to go in and out of favor.

Times are changing back as I have been sent by the doctor who employs me at least once a month to help a mother administer an enema to her child, as well as to help the elderly who are unable to prepare an enema for themselves. Mostly the doctor stays available for what is more complex in treatment.

My pediatrician loves to prescribe enemas over the phone and I can so relate to his calls. I have gotten to the point of not calling him, giving my son an enema, if he is still unwell after a couple of hours, then I call with the news he's had his enema, now what? With my doctors, enemas are in again.

Incredible, I grew up with a mother who believed enemas cured everything. In fact every other Sunday she gave me an enema growing up. Now, I am a true believer in enemas.

My childhood doctor back in the '40s-'50s believed in "real" enemas whenever needed, as was conventional then, but didn't give them himself. His wife/nurse/receptionist was available to advise those moms who didn't know how to give enemas, and was experienced with her own kids.
After a while, moms learned when to give an enema, knowing the doctor would approve, without being asked.
The giving of enemas, then and now, seemed to be mostly 'women's work," and MDs were overwhelmingly male unlike today.

Ed,if you take enemas now, who gives them to you? If you have children, is this still "woman's work" to give them enemas when they need them?

Any male parent, giving an enema to their children, especially girls, are highly suspect regarding their motivation, as to why they are giving the enema to a child.

I agree, Susan. This is a very delicate area best avoided.
My current enemas are mostly self-given, occasionally female-given as in childhood.

Giving enemas to children is NOT abuse as you would imply. For behavioral problems PUNISHMENT with a soapy and hot copious retention enema administered with a double ballon foley catheter gets the attention of even the most recalcitrant young boy - and is certainly a lot healthier than a spanking or a beating.

I agree with Hobbs. Not only does a large volume soapy water enema cure behavioral problems or adjust attitude in children, it is effective for adults as well. It's amazing what a copious retention enema can do.

Susan,

Why the double standard? With all the recent cases of sex between female teachers and their younger students, it is clear that females are equally capable of sexual abuse. Why is it that a father's motives are automatically suspected, regardless of the age of the child and the situation? If you see enemas as "sexual," then they either should be given by the same-sex parent or not at all. You can't logically argue that it is OK for a mother to give her son an enema, but for a father to give his daughter a needed enema is automatically suspicious.

To Leo,
From the ages of 5 to 14 I was a boy who was given many
enemas by my mother. While inserting the nozzle with her
left hand, she would be massaging my stomach and rubbing it
in big circular motions with her right hand, often, whether
intentionally or accidentally, brushing up against my penis.
I found it both pleasurable and embarrassing, but would have
preferred having my father give me the enemas, something he
never did. Since he had the same genitals that I had, it
would have seemed more natural to me. Why don't more dads
give enemas, at least to their sons?

Why is it OK for Mom to give the enemas, or a nurse, or an MD (a male), but suspicious if dad helps give son or daughter an enema? Why should it matter and why would a caring dad be in question as to proper motives?

I never heard of a dr giving a enema in a patients home,, He might recommend the mom to give it or send out a visting nurse to do it, But no a dr would not do it as it would take up to much of his time for such a simple procedure that the average mom can do.

Forty or fifty years ago things were different. I remember Dr Emory, in Brooklyn, NY coming to our house for me or my sibs and sitting at out kitchen table having a cup of my mom's coffee afterward. She probably had some biscuits or an apple pie baked that he sampled.
.
I don't recall him actually giving any of us an enema himself, as my mom would have done that as a matter of course, probably before she went to a neighbor's house to use the telephone to call him. Things were so far different it is hard for people today to understand.
.
An enema was a very common first treatment for everyting this side of a broken arm. That and a mustard plaster. We got those home remedies until I left home.
I remember once my brother and sister and i all had some flu or something as did my cousins who lived nearby.
For some reason we were all moved into my cousin's house so we could be treated together and the Dr came to that house several times.
We had mustard plasters on our chests and enemas as well as hot showers one after another. There was some kind of "epidemic" going around. And when the Dr came he gave everyone a shot.

Giving an enema is not that difficult and I can not imagine any mom being so dense that she needed the doctor to show her how to give one. I guess I have to wonder why she would even have an enema bag or bulb in the house if she did notYea know how to use it.

Years ago girls were given home nursing classes in high schools and the topic of enemas was included.

I didn't need any course at school. When we were sick, my mom sometimes gave us an enema with a bulb thingy that had a black nozzle about three or four inches long. From very early on I remember helping her when she gave my brothers an enema and then when I got a bit older she had me do it carefully.
She would fix a bowl up with warm, not hot, soapy water and bring it, a towel and the bulb to the bedroom. My brothers would have their Pj bottoms and underwear if they had some on, removed and if possible kneel on the towel that was draped over a part of the bed. Then they had to lean over so their heads were on the mattress and their behinds were exposed for the bulb, spreading their knees and cheeks. Sometimes she would take the temperature.
After helping her several times she began to let me apply the lubericating ointment to the boys and even insert the bulb. I was always very careful and gentle with them as I knew how it felt to have the bulb slipped in me.
Mom was very patient and explained what she was doing and how to do it as well as the need to be careful with the boys parts that hung down.
Once there were a couple of bulbs of water in the behind she would let us get up and run to the toilet down the hall. Usually the process was repeated two or three times til the water that came out was clear.
When I was sick it was the same except I do not think she let Mikey do it to me although the boys were usually standing at the doorway where they could see everything anyway.
So I had no need for the Red Cross to teach me about giving enemas. Fortunately we did not get sick that often other than the usual cold or flu each winter.

I took such a course using a Red Cross text in the mid 60s and suspect that it had been taught in the 40s and 50s as well. My mother recalled such a high school course in the late 30s.

I don't ever recall a doctor coming to the house, but I do remember one time that I got an enema at the doctor's office. The doctor didn't give it, his nurse did. This was sometime about 1965 or so and she used a white enema can that had a red hose on it. My mother had given me enemas at home before by they were always with a bulb. All I recall was that I was never happy getting enemas but that one at the doctors really made me poop.

My childhood doctor also had an enema can on a shelf in the examination room, but it was never used on me. Instead I was given all my enemas from a similar can at home, twice on doctor's orders.
As Rob indicated, graduating from a bulb to a 2-qt bag or can is a very memorable experience for many, just because of the increased volume if nothing else.

I was 9 (may,1959) after a gastroenteritis illness,I became badly constipated.The Pediatrician made house calls then.The Doctor ordered me to get a 32 ounce Castille soapy water + 2 level teaspoons of salt enema at a (given) temperature of 103-104 F.I had never had a enema before and it was very unpleasant.My Dad prepared and gave me the enema in the bathroom.I was face down on top of the towel chest with 2 bed pillows under me to elevate my butt,with my legs dangling down over the edge of the towel chest.I was a bit small bodyframed and about 62 lbs.This was a big enema,but the Doctor clearly told my Dad I needed a "full 1 quart soapy water enema" The black vulcanized rubber enema nozzle was made in France and was shaped like a ball bat and nearly 5" long but was inscribed on the nozzle as a "Pediatric" nozzle.The Doctor told my Dad to hang the enema bag 14 inches above the level of my butt.I bawled and cried non-stop from the minute my Dad inserted the enema nozzle into my rectum,until the enema bag was empty.The sensations of that warm soapy water + salt enema were "dreadful" it produced a irritating/burning sensation ,and at the point where 1/2 of the enema had run in,there was a very uncomfortable feeling of fullness/pressure in my gut and rectum.After all the enema had run in me,I was kept face down for 5 minutes with my Dad gently holding the black enema nozzle in my anus/rectum.I thought I was going to explode.After 5 minutes my Dad removed the nozzle,picked me up off the table and plopped me right down on the comode,where all that constipated bm and the enema nearly flew out of me.It was quite unpleasant,but I did need it.

I know how you felt. When my mother gave me enemas I was crying and begging her to stop. The hot and soapy solution inside me gave me a burning sensation and irritability. I was also very embarrassed because many times my father would walk into the room to see what was going on, and told me to stay still and be quiet. I was layin on my stomach on the bed with my legs spread apart crying, while my mother kept squizing the bulb. I thought I was the only one who was getting enemas but later other people told me about their own experiences. They were painfull but I guess I needed them.

Never heard of a doctor giving an enema in a patient's home, but as a child remember the doctor telling my mom to give me one just before he left. Maybe way back when old time doctors did this. I grew up in late 50's early 60's, just before doctors stopped making house calls, they came to the house did what they had to do and left. I didn't like when the doc came by because I would always end up getting an enema.

In my case when my mother would call the doctor's office his nurse would often tell her to give me an enema before the doctor got to our house. This was more the rule than the exception and it would be no surprise that after mom hung up the phone from make the appointment than out would come the enema bag. When the doctor got to the house one of his questions as he was examining me was whether I had gotten the recommended enema, how much was I given, did it work, etc.

My experience was exactly the same. If our doctor was making a house call, you were a good enema before his arrival. When he appeared, the enema was discussed in detail, much to my embarrassment. When my father got home, the same discussion reoccurred.

" ... When my father got home, the same discussion reoccurred. ..."

Yes, that always happened although I sometimes felt my father was too tired to care about the nitty-gritty details. But mom recited some of the most intimate details not just to dad, but my aunt and any of her coffee clique friends who stopped by for some coffee and cake.
And if there was a question of body temperature it would be taken again in the kitchen. That's when it got embarrassing because sometimes, not always, mom would decide I, or my brother or sister, had to lower our PJs and bend over the countertop so she could insert a rectal in front of who ever was visiting.

Enemas were medically rcommended in the name of health and hygiene up to the mid 1950's. Reportedly, Maryln Monroe was regularly "done" and mostly by a live-in house maid (Good help is hard to find). My mum used "do" neighborhood children,though why was never discussed. I thought it unfair that girls could watch boys being "done" but not the other way around. The girls would arrive "sans knickers" under dresses and chat away as if they were at a church-social. The boys were a solemn lot, one hand guarding their backsides and the other covering their nail-hard boyish erections.

Are you using the word "do" to refer to the excrement produced as well as the act of stimulating its expulsion. In the same way that you "milk" a cow, you "do" a constipated kid?!

Does anyone remember what the doctor said before he gave the enema ? Or the rectal temp "

Mostly mine said nothing.

What about ( b4 an enema).. "this will be a little uncomfy..but you will feel much better afterwards " ?

B4 a RT : "If you lay still this won't hurt. It might feel good ."

A commonly heard doctor's order in the 50's, right after he had given you a shot of penicillin in the butt and he was standing at the door ready to leave, talking to your mother, "The shot ought to do it. Just give him a good enema and he will be fine in a day or two."

When I was a kid and a call was made to the Dr's office I could be certain that an enema would be prescribed and guess what? I was right. I can still hear moms words as she told the doctors nurse that she would give Marc (me) an enema right away. Within minutes of the call I was in position with that warm soapy water flooding my bowels and mom reciting the doctors orders to give me repeated enemas until only clear water came out. By the end of the session I was exhausted and totally emptied out. Mom would hang the enema bag and hose on the towel rack to dry for the world to see. It would be there a minimum of 3 days so even if my friends were over they would see the enema bag and ask me about it. Since I was an only child they k new I was on the receiving end of the hose.

My doctor never gave me an enema; however he advised my Mum to do so. The major event I remember him doing was my first DRE. I was only 4 and a half, and I still remember being held firmly by my Mum while the doctor palpated my tummy, and then told her to hold my knees back to my chest (I was laying on my back on her lap), and he, probably gently, but it sure doesn't remember that way, inched his finger into my little behind. I screamed blue murder, and struggled with all my might to break loose, but Mum held firm, and the monster kept inching in. I cannot remember after the insertion, that is, if he 'rummaged around' a bit, maybe I block it out... eventually, though, the digit retreated out of me. Subsequent to that, and after we got home, enemas commenced, all being administered by Mum. I guess he concluded that there was nothing physically wrong with me that was preventing my toilet training being completed. I do consider my self lucky that I got very few shots, none that I remember in the butt.

reply to Sue... actually, compared to that first DRE, the enemas weren't that bad, once I found out that that they weren't as bad. The little nozzle on the syringe was smaller than the doctor's finger. The thing that upset me was the lack of control. I had no choice when I was going to get it; very frustrating, and it made me very angry.. Mum said it was going to happen, and that was it! Too much fussing meant a paddling. And then I would get enema anyway..

I grew up during the 1930's, 40's and 50's. Seems like that I was always sick with colds or flu or something or other. The doctor was called and usually prescribed a sulfa tablet. Sulfa was just coming on the scene about that time. But enemas from the doctor at home does not seem to spark a memory. Enemas yes, and plenty of them too. Hardly a eek passed by but what I received an enema or two or three. And it always seemed that my mother took an enema right after she gave one to me
