My 14 year old daughter has been constipated for 2 weeks now

Customer Question

My 14 year old daughter has been constipated for 2 weeks now and only going a little. her stomach seems upset but not going like she should. she did a glycerin suppository today and didnt get any relief and then 4 hours later did an enima and she said only water came out. Is there anything else we can do or can she do another enima?

Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
As enema did not work, she will likely need an examination by doctor.
If doctor thinks necessary, she can have second enema under medical supervision.
She can try a dulcolax suppository.
This would work better than glycerin suppository.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
