Hi MB. Do you have hemorrhoids? They are dilated blood vessels that can bleed for days after injury. Either way, it is generally safer to try to evacuate from below than by using laxatives from above the constipation. If you still have an enema, you could try again after generously lubricating the tip with vaseline and placing it slowly and carefully into the anus. Once the medicine is in there, it can take 5-10 minutes of holding before producing results.
