How often do you poop? adult content

I'm lucky if I go twice a week. It's really frustrating. My husband and son both poop daily if not multiple times during the day. Why do I only go once or twice per week? Why am I being robbed of that satisfactory feeling you have as you flush? It's not fair! lol

  • Lately once a day. I used to be like you. My doctor told me to drink more water, eat more green vegetables and eat food with fiber. Oatmeal makes me go now.

  • Usually, once a day. That would suck to only poop twice a week, lol. Do you drink enough water and get enough fiber? Maybe you should take the Activia challenge, lol.

  • Probably because you aren't eating enough fiber. I go twice a day sometimes more but I eat a ton of vegetables and fruit every day and no meat, dairy or glutens

  • I add benefiber to my drinks sometimes and I also take stool softeners (per my surgeon's orders). I had weight loss surgery in january and have yet to poop regularily since!

  • Are you in pain from constipation?

  • Every few hours. Usually every time I go to the bathroom... You should be at least pooping once per meal, that's a sign of a healthy digestive system. I would say, FIRST, start to alter your diet. Add more whole grains, fruits and veggies - more fiber! Secondly, I would make sure you are EATING enough water so that your body isn't dehydrated. If that doesn't work... See a doctor.

  • Everyday, usually two or more times. I have no gallbladder so I have a hard time digesting things. So if it doesn't agree it comes out. Coffee always makes me poop too. I will drink a cup and have to go to the bathroom before I even finish the cup.

  • Once a day,

    I use to be the same way, but your holding too much waste in your body.

    Start eating more fiber, yogurt helps you, add more water to your day. That should help.

    Good luck!!!!
