i chose four hours or less. i usually go first thing in the morning (around 7:30am), and then again at some point before noon. i rarely go longer than that in between. i'll often go again sometime after that, later in the afternoon, but not always. but the time evening rolls around, i'm generally empty.

Yep, It's erratic; could be once a day or just as easily four times.

The daily log is produced and filed once a day just after breakfast. The quality of the report is not always of the same standard.

Every day around 7:30 AM, like clockwork. So for me it's 24 hours.

Actually, it varies, though for most of the past week I've gone about 5 a.m. and 6 p.m.; but sometimes it's 5 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. (less than 2 hours apart), and sometimes it's just once a day. My new meds have changed my habit somewhat.

It's a bad day for me when I have to go more than once. I hate "unfinished business".

I voted irratic. My bms often start around 2 am and I could have 5-10 by 6am. Usually they are during the night and wakes me up. Yesterday it was short squirts all day. Too many to count.

I'm as erratic as you could possibly imagine. No rhyme or reason.

Even my poop rebels against society.

I tend to go after a big meal. Gotta love that gastrocolic reflex.

I voted for erratic myself. With IBS, there is no way of telling when I will poop or how many times in a day I will poop. I was more regular when I was a teen. As a teen I went poop 4 times a day. Also, like Kes, I can go after a big meal. It all depends what the day brings. There is no rhyme or reason for me.

Before I started my current job, which has a constantly changing schedule, I could set my watch buy my dumps. 4:30 am, before work, 4:30 pm after work. Now, with my crazy schedule, my body doesn't know what time it is, so I voted erratic.

First is with my morning second piss. Then feel I've got to have another just an hour or so later. Then it's usually okay until needing a third shit in the late afternoon.

It's erratic I guess. I usually have to go when I wake up in the morning, but sometimes I have a second (third, fourth) later on depending on what I ate. Some days I don't go at all. Then there was the other night when I woke up around 3 with angry stomach gurgles. You ever pee out of your ass?

Following th Good Morning Poop which is as reliable as the sun rising, some day's have a second (or third) poop and some don't. Many days there is just one large poop at the start and that's it. Depends on what I eat and my sleep/wake cycle for that day. I work one night shift a week on Fridays, and I notice that day, I tend to poop more often (2 or 3 that day/night).

I am a 2 or 3x per dayer. Usually every weekday between 8:30 to 9:30 during my walk to work (drafting a report about that). Then around 3ish. Then around 8ish. The weekends don't count because my diet changes drastically and that usually leads to the beer shits.

I envy all you poople who claim you poop at the same time first thing in the morning!!! My poop has a pretty strict scedule. And that scedule is 10-15 minutes after I eat and then 45 mins to an hour after that. And this repeats itself depending on how many times a day I eat. Now, before all you non-believers start your "miles of intestines, there is no way food can pass thru you that fast, it's the previous meal" I call BULLSHIT!!!

Well NIne Inch, I'm glad you asked because just two days ago I was traveling to my home town and between cities and 45 minutes from the next town. I ate in the first town and got that urge fifteen minutes after eating a twix candy bar and drinking a coke. I barely made it to the next town before I nearly shit myself.

I am currently on pain mgt. meds for a condition called spondylolisthesis(eh look it up)and I used to be in the four hours or less category. Now... I might poop once a day if I can force one, but then there are days when it's like a going out of business sale. EVERYTHING MUST GO!! NOW!!And more than once. I actually enjoy those days. I feel a sense of accomplishment.

Recently it's become quite erratic. I used to be good for dropping a monster loaf first thing in the morning and then a small one after dinner.

On weekdays I'd say twice. Once before work and once after. Weekends its whenever the urge hits! I'm the king of holding it, and desperately try to only use my home toilet. Years ago at Boy Scout camp I held it for four days! I was running to the toilet with a vengence on that forth day!!

Anywhere from 2-24 hours depending on what I've eaten and how it reacts with the Bacardi.

To Leaky Bowel King: I hear you, though it depends on what I eat. A Big Mac will turn my butt into a salad shooter 15 to 20 min after I eat it. I think it's the combo of grease and roughage. I also have the same thing (minus the lettuce & onion) on weekend mornings when my husband cooks bacon/sausage, eggs, and toast drenched with 'butt'er. I know it's not from the previous meal when I haven't eaten lettuce for a week! I am so glad I found PoopReport. Reading the stories and comments always brings a smile to my face even on the worst of days. Thanks to you all!

Well now Mrs. Fanny, I'm glad I have found a believer. I thought I was one of the few out there who didn't believe the crap these people try to feed us about how fast food can go from top to bottom.

Whoo - beware of White Castle too! :0

If you want to poop more, do more exercise, like walking and doing ab crunches. That's my advice as a certified personal trainer. Exercise gets the poop mechanism "going".

One thing that's disturbing lately though, is that my darling Scat-O-Logical and I are getting the runs a lot. We think it's all our financial worries in this economy :(

I go about every other day. If I go more than once every 48 hours then I'm eating too much. If I go more than twice a day it means I'm sick.

I have found that the number of times I poop per day is in almost direct corrolation with the ratio of fruits and veggies to everything else I eat. If I eat 1:1, I poop once per day. At 2:1 I poop twice; 3:1 = 3 times; etc.

On multipoo days usually they all come between 7am and 3pm.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”
