Does coffee make you poop too?

I'm not a regular coffee drinker. I would say I drink a cup of coffee once a month if that often. I've noticed that anytime I do drink coffee I have to poop immediately after. Is coffee a mild laxative?

  • The caffeine in the coffee is a stimulant. It stimulates all the body's systems including the bowels. Very normal.

  • how do you react to other forms of caffeine? sounds like a caffeine intolerance if it occurs that quickly after just one cup

  • Normal! I only drink it in the winter, and the first week I break my maker back out I have to limit myself big time til my body gets used to it again!
