Difference between an enema and a douche?

I've just heard they both clean you out so what's the differences in them and is one of them safer than the other?

My understanding is that enemas are anal, douches are vaginal. I don't use either though.

Enema cleans out the poop tube, douche cleans out the vag. Dr.s say douching can introduce bacteria, therefore isn't safe to do. Not sure on enemas since I have never had one.

And here I thought they were interchangeable. I learned something new.

It's not so much that douching introduces bacteria (though it can happen). Rather, it cleans out the beneficial bacteria that help to keep the vagina healthy. Without that good bacteria, yeast and bad bacteria can take over and cause all kinds of nasty infections.

As far as I know, enemas don't cause any significant problems.

Definitely not interchangeable! My gynecologist recommends against douching - she says it is associated with increased infections and can do more harm than good.
