How often do you poo?!

Question: How often do you poo!?
I know this sounds gross put it was the topic of mySunday dinner conversation with some freinds!. They think I an abnormal becasue I only go like 2-3 sometimes 4 times a month!. I'm not over wieght and I eat alot why is it I don't go!?
What is a normal amout!?
Is anyone else like me!?
Just wondering!Www@Answer-Health@Com

Yea, not the nicest topic, but i'll throw in my 2 cents!. I am like 2x a week!. I have been to my gastro doctor about it!. Taken the barium test, had a endoscopy and colonosocpy all to make sure nothing was wrong!. He came to the conclusion that that was just normal for me!. I have a girlfriend who was the same way also!. Once she had her son, that changed and she goes everyday!. So everyone is different!. You may just mention it to your doctor during your next physical, I wouldn't feel the need to go run and make an appointment unless this is something new!. There is a powder (clear, tasteless) that you can mix in to water that is supposed to help, I didn't have too much luck with that used to be prescription only which is now over-the-counter, Miralax!. My girlfriend used it and had luck!. Again, everyone is different!. Hope it helps! Good luck! :)Www@Answer-Health@Com

I'd say generally every day!. "Normal" is defined as anything between 3 times a day and every 3 days!. If you're only going once a week at most, that would not be considered normal!. What's your fibre and fluid intake like!? You might have a bit of a sluggish bowel, increasing fibre and fluids would help, otherwise an over the counter laxative might be a good idea!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Wow!!! I go 2-4 times a DAY! Granted, I do eat 3-4 apples a day and lots of whole grains and fiber filled foods!.

If it doesn't hurt, then I think you are ok, but I just can't imagine only going 3-4 times a month!. I wouldn't want that junk sitting in me for more than a day!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

You should really be going every day, or at least every other day!. It greatly increases your risk for colon cancer being that backed up!. You need to talk to your doctor about this!. There could be something very wrong that could be causing this!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

For m I only go when I am at my own home!. When I go on vacation or something I don't poo!. maybe you have a parasite in you or something!?
