Greetings.

Fleet Enema is a saline laxative enema, which works by pulling water from the body into the bowel, and helps soften the stool to produce a bowel movement.

Usually the urge of going toilet is around 2-5 minutes. If it does not produce motion, in this duration means, either the stools are two hard or the rectum is empty.
