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!

If it is green then this means that your food isn't taking the time to digest all the way But there is nothing wrong with that just drink a lot of water because green poop also means if you don't drink a lot of water then you could become dehydrated. That's what my doctor told me I had the same problem.

Hi It has been about 3 days now and every morning I need to go pee really badly which causes me to leak a little, also my stomach has been hurting after I eat and just at random times, but usually only after I eat. I have been pooping more than average these past 3 days. I usually only poop once every two or three days, but recently I have been needing to go 2-4 times every day. This whole thing is very unusual to me. PLEASE help me!

Hi, I hope someone can help me. My normal poop schedule used to be once in the morning about 6:30 before school. This works great because it is right before shower time and I can totally like clean myself and make myself feel all clean. But now there is this new girl on cheer and she it like totally beautiful. She just moved here from California, and I don't know. Maybe it is because of the weather or something because it is like sooooooo cold here, but she poops a lot. She has to poop like at least 1 or 2 times during our routines. And its crazy, because every time she has to poop I have to poop too. I think everyone on cheer thinks we're lovers or something, because we always go to the bathroom together. Even during games it happens. And then after its just like ugh, so gross feeling. It makes me want to go home and take a shower right away. So what should I do? Thanks!!!

Hello, Poopin: Yes, it's possible to have too much fiber, especially if you under-eat other parts of your diet. However, the more usual problem is too little fiber. Normally you get fiber, in varying amounts, with whatever you eat. If you eat non-fattening foods, the fiber in them can help you lose weight (especially if you also exercise). If the fiber makes you poop more, it isn't bad unless the poop is liquid, or is painful, or is so frequent that it interferes with your life. However, if you are eating lots of fiber, you must drink lots of water, or the fiber can constipate you severely.

Can you eat too much fiber? Is eating a lot of fiber healthy? Can it help you loose weight? And even if it just makes you poop more, is that bad? I like to poop.

I am currently 31 weeks pregnant. I can not poop for the life of me! I am drinking more then 8 glasses of water, I keep my hydration up with Gatorade and still can't poop. :( I get these random pains like I'm about to have a massive bm and when I run and sit down I can't go...

Yet in my sleep last night, I had been woken up from horrible tummy achs and even dreaming of trying to poop... I woke up with icky panties... I don't mean full on poop. I mean tiny leakage... and My bottom hurt so bad!

and it's so uncomfortable to move around and just be able to do everyday things. I can hardly get out of bed with out feeling like i'm going to explode...

Assuming that the AC above is also "country cowgirl" you just don't want to stop your destructive behavior bad enough. I smoked for over 40 years before I started getting sores in my mouth that were precursors of oral cancer. I enjoy using my mouth for other things, like eating, and even though it took a superhuman effort at first, I gave up smoking.

If the thought of having a bleeding asshole that hangs down to your knees doesn't bother you, then by all means, continue you're destructive behavior.

I think you need the help of a mental health professional more than the help of a poop humor site.

Oh, When you have shit yourself to death can I have your iPod and cell phone?

AC2,I'm assuming that since you are in school,you are very young. You are probably pooping more because you are going through some changes right now. Keep doing what you do,drink water, and don't worry about the smell. If it came out your ass,it's going to smell.

For the past like three or four years my body has worked like clock work I would go both poop and pee in the morning and then wouldn't go poop the rest of the dayand pee the once more and I felt fine, but just recently, like for the last few months I have been pooping many more times a day. I had been taking a fiber bar after school but I started that like a month or two before my Pooping started get irregular. I also started taking more water and I am on bactrim. I poop out way more then I eat a day. And it usually smells awful.

Mrs.poopin' For starters I would not eat before cheer leading practice. If the poop is going through you so fast that should solve part of your problem.

We would need more information before any more advice could be offered. Is your poop the consistency of diarrhea, etc.

You might consider seeing a doctor if this continues.

I am 14 years old and I am very athletic but I have a problem! Every time I eat I tend to poop it all out right after. I mean RIGHT AFTER I eat. Is this normal for a teen my age? Is there something I can do to go back to pooping regularly?

I am pooping 4-7 times a day. I eat a lot but I poop it out afterwards. I get hungry again and eat more and more but it never stays in my system! I am begging you, is there anything I can do?

This pooping problem is getting in the way of my cheer leading because every day, during practice, I have to poop and my coach gets annoyed that I am having to leave during important routines.

Please give me some advice on what I can do.

Okay, so usually I poop about once every 2-3 days. However, for the past week I been going at least 3-4 times a day. I go at extremely weird times like at four in the morning. The drastic change of times I poop is really scary. Also the poop comes out really loose but not watery. I've been eating a bit more fiber so maybe that why the poop is getting harder because in the beginning it was a bit watery. The color is normal but I hate waking up in the middle of the night because my stomach hurts and I have to poop. I am not taking any pills expect my usually birth controls. Whats happening to me????

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.

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.

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?

Anonymous Coward's picture

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. Any fewer than one a day then it's constipation. Seek a physician if you are experiencing any changes in your bowel routine.

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?

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.

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. I do work at a wild animal rehab place (I work with raccoons, beavers, hawks etc.). Could it be something I picked up from work?

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.

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.

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.

I had terrible body image and i lost a ton of weight. Now i believe that by a sign of god, i see myself in a totally different way and am trying my hardest to gain weight. I am doing extremley well, but it always discourages me when i poop because they are always very big and i lose alot of weight by them. Is there any way to poop so you dont lose as much weight(for example like are there certain times of day that will make you loose less weight or certain periods of time in which you should poop)
Thank You Very Very Much!

Im only 13 and a girl, and I have tried fiber pills and laxatives and drinking a lot of water ( I dont know who told me that would help...) and I tried to drink prune juice but the taste makes me want to vomit...any suggestions???????

Drank bad water, now poop alot's picture

I went overseas and I drank some water from there that was not bottled, and now I poop like 4 times a day when I used to only poop every other day. The poop is very watery. I also have an upset stomach when I have to poop. No blood comes out. Do I have bacteria in my intestines maybe? What should I do?
Please help.
Thanks!

Dear AC: Happy new year! For your sick feelings during otherwise normal poop sessions, unless that symptom goes away soon, you need to see your doctor. Normal pooping should not make you sick. Have yourself checked for a bowel obstruction or something similar.

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.

The past few weeks and completely out of nowhere I've had to poo with an immediate urgency I haven't felt before. It's been a real pain as I have to get up 2-3 times a night out of a sound sleep to relieve myself. The poo isn't solid at all, like diarrhea with chunks. Gross!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nervous Wife's picture

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.

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?

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.

alwayspoop's picture

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 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.

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?

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.

I havent pooped in almost 2 1/2 weeks!!! Laxatives dont work at all! I have tried the mag. citrate or whatever the castor oil nothing works!! It has been like this for as long as I can remeber. 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??

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.
