How to Choose an Enema Bulb or Syringe

Enema Bulbs, also known as Enema Syringes, are a very popular method of administering an enema. They’re a lot smaller than enema bags or enema buckets, so they’re generally a bit cheaper, and also more convenient to use since most enema bulbs will fit in one hand. Because they’re so popular, there’s a lot of different enema bulbs available - this guide will help you pick one that’s right for you.

Enema Bulb Materials

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing an enema bulb is the material it’s made out of. Enema bulbs can be made out of a wide variety of materials, including plastics like PVC and TPR as well as rubber. There are also enema bulbs made out of silicone, such as this bulb or this one. For the most part, these materials are all functionally very similar. However, if you have sensitive skin or material sensitivity, you want a bulb and nozzle made of silicone. Silicone is completely inert, so it won’t irritate your most sensitive areas.

Enema Bulb Size

Another important consideration is the size of your enema bulb, as that determines how much of your enema solution it can hold. Different types of enema solutions require different dosages to be effective, and you may want an enema with more or less volume depending on your body and your needs. It’s always possible to refill an enema bulb while you use it, but it’s a lot more convenient if you can fit the entire solution in the bulb at once. Here at we have enema bulbs with a wide range of capacities. Here are some of the different sizes we offer: 

  • 6 oz
  • 8 oz 
  • 9 oz
  • 10 oz
  • 12 oz
  • 14 oz
  • 15.5 oz

    Enema Nozzle Shape

    Last but not least, you’ll want to think about the shape and size of the nozzle or “syringe” part of the enema syringe. The two most common nozzle shapes are straight and curved, each of which some people find easier to use than the other. If you want a straight nozzle, there are different lengths available, such as 2.6” long or 4” long. With a curved nozzle, another decision you have to make is whether you want a standard curved nozzle or a curved nozzle with a flared tip. There are also a few enema bulbs with more unusual syringes, like this spiral nozzle. Of course, if you want the flexibility and versatility to choose different types, you could get an enema bulb that comes with three different nozzles.

    Beyond these three main considerations, most of the other differences between enema syringes are up to personal preference, like the color of the bulb or the country of manufacture. We hope that this guide has helped you determine the ideal enema bulb for you.
