I feel like I have to poop all the time even after I go. What could be the cause of this?

Tenesmus: Tenesmus ("dry heaves of the rectum") can be due to lots of causes. Irritable bowel can do it. Inflammation in rectum causes spasm whenever stretch due to gas, solid or liquid stool passes through. Can also be due to pressure from gyn organs, colon or rectal masses, including hemorrhoids (and cancer).

I had a colonoscopy yesterday and was told I should poop in 2 days..It seems every time i eat or drink I have to poop now.  Is this normal?

Yes: Yes, it can be normal because of the fluid you had to drink before the colonoscopy. This fluid cleans the inside of your colon by causing loose bowel movements. It sounds like you still have some in your colon. It should work its way out in a couple of days. ...Read more

Sometimes I have to poop 2-3 times in one day but sometimes I won't go for 2 days I also get strong urge to go are the colon cancer symptoms I'm 20?

No.: Unless a LOT of people in your family have colon cancer below age 50. There are genetic diseases that give colon cancer at a young age. If you dont have that in your family and you would know, then colon cancer is exceedingly rare below age 50. Irritable bowel however is quite common. ...Read more

Any : Any foods with blue dye can cause blue poop such as boo-berry cereal, kool-aid, jell-o or even natural sources such as blueberries. Good news! the only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, blue, or even purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If she has a persistent change in her stool habits, you should contact her physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern. ...Read more

I'm getting nauseous every time I have bowel movement, but it goes away after its passed. Happens mostly at night. I never vomit, poop is normal.

Nausea with bm: Occasionally nausea reflexly accompanies a bowel movement due to stimulation of the vagus nerve. The nausea should only be transient. Since your bm's are normal, I see no need for concern at this time. You could consult your physician or a gastroenterologist if you still have concerns. ...Read more

How often should i have bowel movement? I've heard some people have it like 3 or 4 times day

Everyone different: A person's bowel transit time varies. Some people have BMs 2-3x/day while others go every 3-7 days. A lot of this can be diet-related. High fiber diet and staying hydrated will lead to more regularity in stooling. Some inflammatory bowel disorders and some infections can increase the transit time (more stools during the day). Irritable bowel syndrome can increase or decrease BM frequency... ...Read more
