Possibly in the food: There are fat substitutes that are poorly or not absorbed and thus pass thru the digestive system and can be present in the stool.

I am a bit concerned about my bowel movement lately. My stool have changed to a ball-like shape x 6wks. Its not hard and I usually go once a day.

More fibre: It sounds like you just need a bit more fibre in your diet.There's no blood, no constipation, and the stools not hard - if it were, i'd suggest better hydration. So, add whole grain breads and cereal, fruits, and vegetables. You could try a bulk laxative, such as fibre con or equivalent - not to help you move your bowels, but to add bulk and consistency. Good luck. ...Read more

I've had two bowel movements today. In each instance, the stool looked normal but there was a bluish-green quality to the water near the feces. Help.

Stool: If the stools were perfectly normal in color and consistency, it doesn't appear that the pigment in the toilet water indicates a bowel abnormality. If further bowel movements appear abnormal, consult your physician who can inspect and test the stool for hidden blood. I feel that the pigment in the toilet water was some extraneous pigment. ...Read more
