Confusing Constipati: Most think it is "normal" to have one bowel movement a day, the actual range of normal bowel movements is quite large, its normal to have anywhere from as many as three bowel movements a day to as little as three bowel movements a week. Constipation is hard, dry, lumpy stool that is difficult or painful to pass and which may be accompanied by bloating and discomfort. M.Coli from laxative abuse.
