Enema: FSA Eligibility
What is an enema?
An enema is the introduction of a liquid, typically mineral oil, into the anus to produce stool stimulation. Enemas are used to treat constipation and to clear the bowels before a procedure, such as a colonoscopy (Verywell Health).
How does an enema work?
Enemas can be administered either in a medical office or at home. At a medical office, the doctor will administer the enema, which is recommended for patients who have not had one done before.
