Has anyone taken a fleet enema during pregnancy

So in a few weeks i will have to go in for a possible surgery but before my appointment i have to take a fleet enema and i read up on the fda info and it says there haven't been enough studies to show if it's safe for an unborn baby.

if anyone has delivered or even lost a baby while you took this please let me know and ease my mind.

  • I had to take one a few weeks before my son was born. It was recommended by my OB. It used to be routine for women to have enemas before delivery so I'm not sure why the warning on the box.
