Best Bidet Toilet Seats for Constipation in 2024
Being constipated is no fun. In fact chronic constipation, and constipation in general, can have a number of negative health impacts such as:
There are many things that can be done (besides taking conventional laxatives) to relieve constipation:
- Drink water (lots)
- Eat fiber (lots)
- Prunes or prune juice
- Have a coffee (not a long-term solution)
- Diet rich in magnesium

Can a bidet seat help with constipation? The answer is YES! A bidet can stimulate the poop reflex if it comes with an enema function.
There are bidet toilet seats with an enema function that help to provide relief by spraying a strong narrow jet of water from the bidet seat's nozzle into the anus, introducing water into the rectum and colon, and creating an urgent need to poop. Note that this is not a true enema, as a real enema uses a syringe that is inserted directly into the rectum.
In the case of a bidet enema the bidet nozzle never actually makes direct contact, only the water jet. You will just need to use the bidet seat's nozzle adjustment function to get the right position and the right water temperature (warm, not hot is best). Then try to relax and let the enema function do its job.

This wildly popular luxury bidet toilet seat has a patented Vortex Wash that behaves like an enema by shooting a strong, swirling spray that stimulates and penetrates the rectum and gets you to poop quickly and easily.

The Clean Sense DIB-1500 series has been around for a number of years and has developed quite a following, mostly due to its great price. The Clean Sense DIB-1500 has a decent enema function, although not as effective as the powerful Bio Bidet Bliss BB-2000 and the Ultra Nova bidet toilet seats. It has a tankless on-demand heating system and is therefore very energy smart. It comes with a wide array of features, including "child mode". Available in both remote control and side-panel control versions for elongated and round toilets.
