3 Bowel Movements A Day
I'm 33 and started having 3 bowel movements a day a few months ago? I haven't changed anything in routine or diet. What would cause this?
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
My 8 year old daughter, whom suffers from constipation, has been having 2-3 bowel movements a day for several days. Bright green BM's. This morning aw?
Bowel Patterns: The green color of the BM should not be a concern, that could be cause to whatever is on her diet (vegetables or either candies with colorant). Per the description I'll will consider this to be normal stool pattern. Take a look at the table attach, If your daughter stool is between 1 and 2 then increase fiber intake and talk to your doctor to add some medication regimen.

I occasional have 3 bowel movements a day, not much comes out each time. Multiple Blood, stool test NEG ibd, parasite etc. More likely ibs?
Possibly IBS.: These symptoms don't sound worrisome, unless this is a distinct change your bowel habits. For it to be IBS, the symptoms would have to persist for six months or longer. If the change in your bowel habits persists, or if you see any blood in your stool, or if you have unexplained weight loss, I would contact your doctor immediately. Otherwise, I would recommend a high-fiber diet. Hope this helps.
Had 2/3 watery bowel movements a day for 4 days now along with nausea. No vomiting. Felt hot a few times. Does this sound like a bug?
Gastroenteritis.: This could be gastroenteritis, or a stomach bug. As such, it should really be resolving in a day or two. As well, if you've taken an antibiotic within the past week or two, this watery diarrhea could be a form of infectious colitis. If you don't improve by tomorrow, seek medical attention locally.

38weeks pregnant. Bad tummy ache, constant bowel movements 3/4 times a day, nausea, and gassy. What can be the cause of this?
2nd pregnancy, lots of pressure in vagina/rectum, more frequent urination, more frequent bowel movements (3+/day) occ. Contracts. & cramps.Labor soon?
Not necessarily: Without more information it's hard to answer the question. How many weeks are you? If you are past 34 weeks, these can be common symptoms that are not of great concern, and not necessarily indicative of imminent labor. In general, unless you are having pains that stop you from doing things occurring every 5 minutes or closer, these are likely braxton-hicks type contractions, not true labor.

I have bowel movements two or three times a day. Sometimes my stomach hurts and there not hard but mushy light brown. Do I need more water in me?
Your stool pattern: ...alone is not the determiner of your hydrational status, so I'm sorry we cannot accurately comment further as to the adequacy of your water intake versus requirements based on the limited provided data.
Hi I have bowel movements every other day when I use to go three times a day and when I go its dark green and sometimes it floats. Ct hida scan normal?
Possible other cause: Have you changed your diet? Changes in consistency of BM can also be due to what we eat. Do you have any abdominal pain? If you got a CT HIDA I am assuming you are seeing a physician, and I would encourage you to advocate for further laboratory tests to make sure your pancreas is also healthy. Drink water, fruits/veggies, and decrease fat intake to see if this makes a difference as well.
No Correlation: Sorry.....there is generally NOT a correlation between BM's and periods. Now, eating a bigger breakfast, or a fattier one, can cause a gastrocolic reflex, that MAKES your body want to have a BM after eating, but other than that...no real connection.
Rule out obstruction: Sounds like an abdominal series to rule out an intestinal blockage or ileus is next needed.
Feel no need to have a bowel movement after three days. Have fibre and do eat a little less than normal but lots of water. Is it normal or ok?
