  • Well, you can go a very long time, but it wouldn't be healthy. It more depends on what is regular for you.

    We all have our own normal

  • surprise that many people do not know what a “normal” bowel movement is. The fact is that there is no one definition of a normal bowel movement. There are gradations of normal, and every person is going to have different bowel habits. There are, however, several signs that a bowel movement is abnormal and should be discussed with a physician.

    Once a day, right?
    Many people believe that the definition of a normal bowel movement is having 1 movement each day, but that is not true for everyone. There is no rule for frequency of bowel movements, but the general range is from 3 times a day to 3 times a week. Less than 3 movements a week may indicate constipation, and more than 3 watery stools a day could indicate diarrhea.
