  • Everyone is different, what is normal for one may not be another. Mine is like 2 times a week, my hubby is 2 times a day, my youngest is like 4 times a week, see it really varies. As long as its not hard, you are your normal.

  • Everyone is different. It depends on what you eat and your body.

  • Normal is without discomfort.

  • Once a day for me and my kids but dh is 3 times a like clockwork. You could set your watch to it. My mom is the same way as my dh. The Activa really works but it just got to expensive to keep buying. It's a lot easier to take a probiotic pill once a day and cheaper.
