PoopMachine asks:

I'm a female, and I've been pooping a lot lately - on average, three to four times a day. Is there anything abnormal about this? I've never pooped so much in my life. I do take some medications for depression and allergies, could that be the culprit? Should I mention this to my doctor? I'm not in any pain, and I feel fine otherwise.





Dear Poopmachine,

If you aren't having diarrhea or other issues with your poop, I would be tempted to just keep an eye on things and see what happens. Watch your diet -- could be you are eating more fiber than usual. Your medications COULD be having some sort of effect -- did this start soon after beginning them?

Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Pooping Green,
take some immodium or pepto bismol as directed on the bottle. If you dont get relief from that, go see a doctor.

hi i am female, and i poop and pee at the same time. I have done this ever since I was a kid. I used to ask my sister if she ever pooped and peed at the same time and she said no. Is pooping and peeing at the same time normal?

If you are having pooping problems, see a doctor. If you are on a medication, that may be the cause. If this persists, see a doctor.

Pregnant, you should call your OB, just to be sure. Even if it's off hours, there should be an exchange or a nurse on call who can advise you.

Dear Pregnant,
I assume that your poop is odd because of all the crazy stuff that you preggos eat. You probably ate a family size bag of M&Ms and picked out the green ones exclusively.

Signs point to BUY A PREGNANCY TEST

However, to be honest, my boobs hurt when I got pregnant.

Why the hell wouldn't you just go get a test at Rite Aid and test yourself in their restroom? This is a bit too serious to ask us.......please consider.

I poop a lot. 3-4 times a day is common. Sometimes it's a lot more than that. One time I counted 9 poops in one day. The stools are normal, no constipation, not too loose. Normal color. It just happens a lot.

And when I have to poop, I HAVE TO POOP NOW! I don't feel the need to poop coming on. It sneaks up on me. I go from no urge at all to "OMG, I have to poop NOW!" in as little as 3-5 minutes. I drive a truck for a living and I find myself rushing, panic-sticken to the nearest toilet several times a week.

Sometimes I can't get to a toilet fast enough (I drive through rural counties with up to 70 miles between gas stations and rest areas). I have had to poop in the woods, in a paper bag in the back of my truck...there have been a lot of odd and uncomfortable situations. I have had many "near misses" where I almost poop my pants. I have actually done the dirty deed (pooped my pants) twice this year. That's never happened before. It's embarassing and it has to stop.

I take anti-depressants. I drink 2-3 cups of coffee every morning. I drink soy milk on my cereal. I also have an enlarged prostate (my doctor ran tests and said I have nothing to worry about there). I am 50 years old and otherwise healthy for my age.

What is wrong with me? Help!

I think the responses would have been "Go take a pregnancy test this weekend." Asked, and answered.

**********

For Prairie Doggin': I might suggest taking a weekend and try fasting. Don't eat ANYTHING after lunch on Friday. Eat nothing and drink ONLY water until Saturday evening. Yes, that's 30 hours. You said you wanted help.

Eat a normal, balanced meal for supper on Saturday night, with nothing but water after 7:00 p.m. Have a balanced breakfast on Sunday, including fruit, grain, and protein. ONE cup of coffee (maybe 10-12 oz), no juice.

Only water until lunch. Again, serving-suggestion sized meal, and only water again until supper. Balanced, not-huge supper, and once again, nothing but water after 7:00.

See if that doesn't reset the ol' system. Please give us an update; if it works, I'll send you a bill. :)

i had diarrhea for a few days and took imodium ad. I've eaten nothing but bananas and high fiber toast for the last two days. Now my poop is basically solid(no more diarrhea) but i'm gassy and I poop quite often, like once an hour or so. Should I start eating regular foods again and cut down on the fiber. and should i take Gas-X or something for the gas.

I have been pooping way more than I used too. I used to go every other day or 2-3 days, sometimes 4. Now I go about every day. It is really dark too, so its really scarring me. Its not black, but its close. Do you think eating a lot of Oreo's the past couple of days would do this?

Please help as I have no medical, so I cant see a doctor right now.

Alot of that can be attributed to the water gain we experience during the month. When your period starts and your body begins to get rid of that water, it increases your bowel's productivity. This makes you poop more.

To WorriedSick: Oreo cookies will certainly darken your poop. I had a lot of them a few weeks ago and noticed very dark stools. Since they weren't tarry or sticky (like those from digested blood), I didn't worry.

I am 6 weeks pregnant.
I poop at least 3 times a day, which is 2 more per day than how my body worked before pregnancy. Everything I read says that pregnant women have a problem with constipation; but my situation is the opposite! Does anybody know if all this pooping is a sign of something being wrong with my pregnancy?

I'm also 6 weeks pregnant and am having the exact same pooping issue. Anyhow, not sure what it's about, the only thing I can think of is that the iron from prenatals isn't trumping the extra fiber I'm trying to eat. Plus, if you're like me and eating more because you're starving it may just be our bodies working overtime to keep up with our intake. Were you on a diet before? I was on 1500 calories a day and have added cals to help sustain my weight and the 300 extra baby calories needed. That may have something to do with it...but if any poopers out there have better advice I;m certainly keen on hearing it!

Poop-Problem Resolutions's picture

The answers to many of the questions on this site are here:

Suddenly pooping more often,...it all depends on how much food you eat. When I did the atkins diet, I only pooped once a day because I didn't each much. When I got off the diet and started eating everything I wanted again, I ended up sometimes pooping 2 times a day, or even 3 times if the second time didn't 'finish'. That's normal.

Erratic bowel habits...Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the most common cause. Google it and make some diet changes, and that should help. There's an OTC 'pill' for Irritable Bowel Syndrome made by Digestive Advantage that helps a LOT. Trust me, I know.

Erratic bowel habits Part 2,...Celiac Disease. That's when the body has an intolerance to wheat gluten, which is in, like, most of the foods we eat. That's serious, and needs to be medically diagnosed, as consumption of wheat gluten by an intolerant person can lead to intestinal damage. If you suspect Celiac, try avoiding all bread, pasta, and other wheat foods and see what happens. Read all ingredient labels, and avoid anything that says 'gluten' or 'wheat gluten'. Some stores sell gluten-free products.

Green poops...that's totally normal, especially if you eat stuff like black jellybeans, blueberries, Boo Berry cereal, lots of salad greens, spinach, etc.

Diarrhea...lactose intolerance is a common cause. Try avoiding milk, ice cream, half&half, etc, and see if it improves.

Period poops...it's normal for your poop to be different during that time, due to hormone differences.

Another thing that can cause these problems is a dairy allergy! If none of these suggestions help, and you're really suffering, consider asking to be tested for dairy allergy. It's not as common, but it IS a major cause.

The only time that I ever get any relief is the week before my period and I honestly lose up to 10 pounds every month in just poop its the only time I go!! Can anyone tell me whats up with that??

Dying to poop- I have the same problem.
The rest of the month I feel so horrible and bloated and fat. I can't poop AT ALL! Laxatives don't even work. It's horrible. I went to the doctor and she suggested I see a GI doc bc she suspects it could be IBS. I haven't gone to the GI doctor yet, but I'll let you know what happens.

Hi, I never had to go to the bathroom at all at school or work, or if I did it was very rare, I would just have to go when I got home. About a year ago I started to have to go 3-4 times or more at school, or if I was out somewhere, and rarely have to go at home. When I go sometimes it takes a while, and is in little pieces instead of 1 big one like usual, sometimes I would go so much at school my but started to hurt. And also sometimes I feel like I have to go but its just farts that feel like stuff is coming out but it is'nt. Is this normal?

I poop 4 times a day. Generally I wake up in the morning and take a nice healthy poop. Great color and solid. Once I commute to work I like to take another poop, again, it's a champion.

Around 2:00pm EST I poop again.

Last, around 8pm EST, I poop.

I could set a watch to my pooping schedule.

If I poop less than 4 times a day I feel nasty. Pooping to me is a time to relax and cleanse my system.

I've also found Jamba Juice will help you have a nice healthy poop.

Keep on pooping.

This kills me. Guess what!!!! After about 2 hours give or take you should be crapping after every meal. This is GOOD BODY CHEMISTRY. Anything else is NOT normal. (might be "normal" but NOT healthy) One whole day without a bowel movement is NOT OK. It is GOOD for your body to relieve itself from the toxins and impurities. Thats all it's trying to do. If you're crapping more than usual, you've done more harm than your body can take. Thank yourself for being so efficient.

I have read that, however many poops we have per day, it's the quality that counts. If they are not diarrhea, not a lot of little painful nuggets, not accompanied by cramping or other pain, just nice normal turds that, in coming out, relieve the feeling of fullness in the bowels, you're probably fine. I have had four normal b.m.'s in a day, and didn't mind a bit. Constipation or diarrhea--no, thanks.

I wish I was so lucky to poop four times a day. The last time I did that regularly, was when I was a teen. I would poop 4 times a day, (when I get up, after school, after dinner, and before I go to bed) without fail. Now,I am 40 years old and I am lucky if I poop twice a day._

This has been interesting, reading this page. I came to this site to see if anyone has my same issue. I often go through the week (M-F) and only poop once or twice. Maybe 3 times. But on Saturday morning - watch out. I usually end up pooping once an hour (or more often) until I have pooped 4-7 times. Sunday, I also poop more than normal (2-3 times on Sunday). I am not consciously "holding it" for the weekend. I do not know why, but it has been this way for several years. I feel fine. Anybody relate to this?

Hello. My husband poops more than anyone I know and it worries me. No less than 4 times a day and he's ALWAYS complaining his stomach hurts. He has gone to the doctor, who classified it as IBS. His doctor also treats my husbands Mother who was diagnosed with the same thing. Great family doctor - but I don't think he spent enough time diagnosing my Husband, never ran tests - just figured it ran in the family. We changed his eating habbits and it still remains the same. It's so bad we can't even eat out at a restuarant. He ends up having to go to the bathroom before we can leave and on occassion hasnt made it home when we've tried. It has been effecting our personal life because we can't go out to dinner with friends and family - and if we do, he doesn't eat. I feel horrible eating when I know he's hungry. So we order all our food to go. I guess the issues are, he poops a lot regardless if he eats and when he does eat he poops within mins. He is only 25. His grandfather had colon cancer - but I can't push him to get a second opinion because the doctor who diagnosed him has been in their family for years. His weight dramatically changes too. Right now he is about 200lbs and not less than a year ago he was 145 and looking sick. It has gone back and forth like that 3 times in the 5 years we have been together. Any thoughts?? Could it be IBS?? I don't want to continously fight about the 2nd opinion thing if I am just overly concerned. Thanks for your time.

Dear Nervous, I had IBS about 20 years ago for a few years. It did not make me go that much more often; just sometimes it would be sudden urgen, and diarrhea. I neither gained nor lost weight. My doctor gave me a pill that slowly but surely, over a period of months, shut down the symptoms. What your husband is experiencing does not sound like the IBS I had, though I'm sure there are plenty of variations in symptoms. Keep after him to go back to his doctor or get a second opinion; I can't imagine his doctor would object. In fact, if I were the doctor, I'd want a second opinion, because it would be frustrating to have a patient I could not help.

Anon, how old are you? I'm going to be forty next year. The reason I ask is because at different times in their lives people grow, lose weight, or change their body shape. It could be puberty, post-partum, pre-partum, etc.

Could it be that you're going through a life change - teenager to adult, whatever?

For the past 3 days im feeling gas move down from my chest into my butt. And then I would have to go naturally. But when I go to take a dump it comes out all watery with a few nuggets.

To the person with the green poop and diarrhea, have you been eating any black licorice? That stuff gives me bright green poop and almost instant loose green stools and sometimes really nasty gas. Black licorice is a natural laxative.

I poo almost every half hour or 45 minutes I don't eat more than one meal a day(just not hungry lately). My poo isn't normal it looks very fatty or oily is this something I should take up with a clinic? I don't feel sick but before I have to go I get twinges of pain in my kidney area. I have noticed my skin is a bit more pale than usual and I have dark circles under my eyes. I am on a thyroid replacement hormone for hypothyroidism as well.

I was wondering what makes you go poop more. I ate some prunes but it didnt really work and I been eating fiber cereal but that dont too much work either.

Poop2 Lose Weight.....What you are doing in not unhealthy but it is not smart. Prunes are chock full of good fiber but they are also high in calories. If you are eating a sweetened high fiber cereal you are adding still more calories to you diet and will not achieve your goal. Put the prunes aside and substitute tons and tons of broccoli (without cheese sauce!) or any other low calorie vegetable.

Just wanted to share with you all this morning that I ate some garlicy alfredo with whole wheat pasta, two cups of blue berries, two cups of black berries, two eggs over easy and pancakes yesterday...along with four beers at the local tavern. Today, two big green babies that have made the whole house smell like garlic ass, and, had to buy another shower curtain.... The odor shriveled it up again. WONDERFUL!!!!

I know since having my gall-bladder removed, I poop EXTREMELY irregular. I can go from being constipated enough to rip my ass open to runnin like Forrest Gump. It's insane. If anyone else has a weird poop schedule and has had their gall bladder removed, this is most likely the culprit. When the GB is removed, theres no bile to assist with digestion.

I have been up since 5:00 this morning with diarrhea. It sucks. I also have to leave for work in about 30 minutes. What can I do to stop it? It also seems like every morning when I get to work, it hits me like a ton of bricks. I have to get to work 15-20 minutes early because I know its gonna hit me. I really hate it when it hits me after I clock in because I'm usually the only cashier working and I can't leave my register until somebody else comes into work. What can I do? Its a pain in the ass---literally.

Lactose Intolerance runs in my family on my mom's side. I finally became lactose intolerant as well. I'm also a chef and love my dairy. To me the dairy is worth the long liquid poopage maybe 10 minutes afterward. It's really not painful or anything, I almost feel it to be cleansing. It's like a nice flush for the colon.

To the people wit' da poop (thats me trying to be funny)
I'm not the smartest person, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but sureley the best thing to do if your are having poop problems would be to try changing you diet for a week or so, see if it makes any difference. try eating things that are higher in fibre, stop eating ready meals or microwave meals, or just try to maintain a routine.

I have a friend who just eats when he feels like it, and he poops like there's no tommorow. whereas I try to keep a routine as to when I eat, and I usually poop regularly,(with the exception of a few IBS moments).

Even if it's only for a week, try a new diet, and try to maintain a routine. if that doesn't work, a trip to the doc might be necessary.

Ok so for the past 2 weeks I've been pooping alot up to 9 times a day. It's not watery or anything. It's a solid poop. I'll be fine then suddenly feel nauseous and have to run to the toilet to poop then the nausea goes away as soon as ive done my business. I don't understand what it could be. I wouldn't be so worried if i didn't feel so sick suddenly then have to poop. It's ruining my day to day activities. I'm getting scared to eat

Dear Not Working: If your digestion has quit, something is wrong. See your doctor if the problem doesn't "work itself out" in the next day or so. If you're not constipated in your bowls (which the rest of us spell bowels), then you need an explanation for not pooping.

Dear Nothavingfun: If you're getting up at night for diarrhea, something is wrong. See a doctor. Be sure to tell him if you are having nausea, fever, chills, or other symptoms. Even diarrhea by itself should have some explanation. Go get it.

Regardless, I am 6'2" and 140 lbs...for now, and I expect I'll lose a few pounds yet, going through some medical stuff, but I'm perfectly happy with my body, 6 pack abs, buns of steel (well, no, play dough, maybe), and no flab. I'll take being skinny over being overweight, anyday.

Underweight ... The best thing for you to do is eat and drink in a healthy way and just enjoy life. If you are eating normally and still losing weight you should be checked out by a doctor since that can sometimes be a sign of something dangerous.

I have the problem of being able to smell food cooking and gain weight. I had a friend while I was in the service who was just the opposite. He would eat a large breakfast then come in for a six hour shift with three sandwiches. He would go home and drink beer and eat fried chicken gizzards all afternoon. He would top his day off with a large evening meal then retire for the day. He was a few pounds underweight for his physical every year.

Just enjoy the genes you have been passed by your ancestors and don't obsess about your weight. If it makes you feel better thin people generally have longer lives than fat people.

Dear 2: For probably 20 years I used to poop immediately upon waking, and then I would have another movement after breakfast. It was not abnormal for me, and it is not abnormal for you. For now, it's just the way your body works. Let it work. I used to go three times a day (the third one would be late morning to mid-afternoon), and at the time that was normal. DO NOT try to hold the early one in until you think the later one is coming so you can do it all at once; I don't know what trouble that might lead to, but I am sure that it is much better to listen to your body and do what it tells you when it comes to pooping.

For the past week I have been pooping quite a bit (ranging 3-8 times a day). The first few days it was really bad diarrhea. Now it's more frequent but just loose stools, not quite diarrhea. It also smells really really bad. The need to poop comes on really quickly and it's very painful. I have also noticed mucus in the stool. I haven't changed my diet.

Three bowel movements in a day can be perfectly normal (I had three yesterday); diarrhea is not normal, and if it continues, I would see a doctor. You could have an illness or some sort of bowel condition. Most illnesses or bowel conditions are treatable, at least to some extent; or your doctor might identify a diet deficiency or anomaly that you could easily correct.

A lot of people mentioned having green feces and some answered to immediately see a doctor. If it continues or is worrying you then of course visit your doctor. However other causes for green feces is eating large quantities of green vegetables (particularly ones with a high fiber count) or food that has green food coloring in it. So if you are drinking any green colored drinks that could contribute to it. Also color wise, very dark, almost black feces usually means inner bleeding so IMMEDIATELY see your doctor. On the other hand, red feces usually means red wine or any food that has red food coloring in it. There are usually phone numbers you can find locally for doctors that can answer any urgent questions over the phone. So any time you are worried you should talk to someone. Wouldn't you rather know it is nothing then find out that if you'd seen your doctor your health wouldn't be at risk?

Bad morning poops -- you could try eating carbs at separate meals from animal proteins. I used to have bad poop like yours every morning for 5 years straight, and making that one change to the way I ate gave me healthy normal poop in just one day (though it may take a little longer).

I read that normal healthy adults should poop anywhere from once to three times per day, and that it's considered diarrhea (whether solid or not) if you're going four times and over.

I'm 17. I wake up in the mornings at 5AM hoping to get all of my poop out so I don't have to go during school since we are not allowed to use the bathrooms anymore due to idiots setting the stalls on fire. Unfortunately, I can't get anything to come out. Then, once I get to my first class, I have to go and can't hold it. The same thing happens during 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th periods (aka, all of my classes). This has been happening for about 7 weeks, and the doctor doesn't know what's going on. For the first three or so weeks it was diarrhea, but for these past four weeks, it's been solid, normal stool; I've just been going 5+ times a day during school and I'm not able to hold it. It's not stress induced; I actually like school and am ready to get this to stop because I hate having to leave school just to go shit. Also, eating constipators (bread, cheese, etc.) isn't working, and I've ruled out Celiac's and Lactose intolerance. Any ideas on what could be happening?

AC 11/05: Diarrhea is liquid stools. Solid stools, even if 10 times a day, is not diarrhea. Diarrhea can be dangerous (if it persists) because it dehydrates the patient. Solid stools won't do that, and I have never heard of a solid b.m. being called diarrhea.

Cheese is a high-fat food item and if your meat consumption also includes fat I think that might account for it. Cheese has never had a constipating effect on me.
