The answer of the doctor-doctor: Hello. Enema (microclysters) for prostatitis really very effective, but only as adjuvant therapy. When properly used enemas relieve inflammation, pain, improve well-being. Usually used water, medicine and oil microclysters. But it is important to remember that all types of enemas there are contraindications, therefore, to assign themselves their own and as a primary treatment is not necessary. It is important to remember that the therapeutic effect, if the volume of the enema from 30 to 100 ml will be a long time is in the rectum, if after the introduction of the solution will immediately have a bowel movement, then the effect will be zero. Enemas are contraindicated in inflammatory processes in the intestine, hemorrhoids, acute course of prostatitis (exacerbation), tumors of the intestines.
