In brief: Increased peristalsi

Although, the information you provided is not sufficient to arrive at correct diagnosis, one explanation is that you may have increased peristalsis (contractions) of your colon (namely, cecum, portion of the colon located in the right lower abdomen in response to bowel movement.
It may have to do with the consistency of your stools, how much straining you have etc.
