I am 32 weeks pregnant, and was wondering if it was safe to use an enema. I know that many elect to have an enema the day that they go into labor. So, I just want to make sure that this is not going to make me go into preterm labor.
Enemas irritate your intestinal lining, which causes a prostaglandin release, which is what can trigger labor. Enemas are used by some midwives to help get labor going. I would advise against it at this time. Have you tried fiber instead?
