Hello. Although I canâ€™t say why your feces is green; letâ€™s examine possible causes. Since you did not describe any health problems, I am working on the assumption that you feel healthy. One reason could be your diet. Eating foods that contain chlorophyll (i.e., broccoli, spinach or other green leafy vegetables) or taking iron supplements or multiple vitamins that contain iron can lead to green bowel movements. Green food coloring which can be found in foods like popsicles or jello is a possibility.
If you have diarrhea and green stools that is a different matter. Bile is green and is excreted into the small intestine. If your stool is moving too fast through your gut, it may not be properly digested and you could end up with green stool from the bile (rather the brown feces).
Possible causes of green bowel movements can include: using antibiotics, food poisoning, diarrhea from bacteria or parasites, irritable bowel syndrome, using laxatives, malabsorption and diseases that cause inflammation in varying areas of the gut.
It is not uncommon to have green bowel movements once in a while. If you have green bowel movements and you have diarrhea or abdominal pain, that would be a reason to get checked out by the doctor. If your stool is always green and it canâ€™t be explained by supplements, medications or diet, check with your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

46, on no meds, perimenapuasal, with uterus, beginning estrasorb & prometrium (micronized progesterone). Should I use them both daily for best relief of menopausal symptoms?
Follow the Rx!: The estrogen cream is usually used every day for relief of such symptoms as hot flashes. Progesterone pills (such as prometrium) do not relieve symptoms. They are often used for only part of the month (most often 12-14 days) just to protect the lining of the uterus from too much stimulation from the estrogen. Estrogen alone can cause excess thickening of the lining or even polyps or cancers. ...Read more
