I just recent saw bright green stool after using the bathroom. This is new for me. In addition I have also had vaginal + rectal itching..

See answer: Green stool indicates that your food is moving through your intestines more quickly than usual and not giving your bile a chance to turn the normal brown color. By itself, this is not a sign of a specific illness. Your itching is unrelated to the green stool. Since your also having vaginal itching Candidiasis may be the cause.

My stool has been bright green for the past 3 days. I am under a lot of stress due to finals week and have been drinking a lot of green tea. Am I okay?

Green stool can also come from eating large amounts of green foods. You might want to keep a watch on this to see if it normalizes after your finals are over. If it doesn't, please see your physician. Biliary issues might need review. ...Read more
