A Normal Cycle Of Bowel Movements In A Day?
Hello, I want to ask about my bowel movements. I defecate 2-3 times a day, is that normal? Whereas when I ask my friends they only once a day, there are even those who defecate once every 3 days
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There is a history of defecation habits or bowel movements 3 times a day, generally still within normal limits. From the data and medical information available, in general, humans have a habit of defecating starting from three times a day to three times a week. This defecation range or bowel habit is still considered normal and can be an indicator of digestive health. So when looking at the frequency of your CHAPTER, in general one day CHAPTER 3 times is reasonable.
However, it is necessary to consider the evaluation of other BAB indicators. Indicators to consider are there are no complaints that accompany BAB (such as abdominal pain, rectal area feels hot or painful), color, shape, length of bowel movements and the consistency of your bowel movements. If in a day you do not feel accompanied by CHAPTER complaints, then this is reasonable.
Whereas with regard to other CHAP evaluation indicators, reasonable CHAPTERs are:
1. a good CHAPTER shape can be shaped like a piece of wood or log like shape
2. The color can be brownish to yellowish
3. easy to come out when defecating
4. the consistency of soft solid, not too soft and liquid, and not easily destroyed when in toilet water
5. CHAPTER about 10-15 minutes
thus, if your bowel movements are of a soft consistency and have more water content, this shows an unfavorable form that can be related to the type of food you consume and the possibility of irritation in the digestion. Likewise, if your bowel movement is longer than 15 minutes, this can be related to the lack of fiber and fluid every day. Therefore, evaluate the accompanying complaints as well as the nature of the stool that is wasted, so you can identify the presence or absence of problems related to your digestion. If there is a change in the shape of bowel movements or the nature of bowel movements, you can identify the types of foods that you consume that may cause changes in the nature of your bowel movements, such as spicy foods, coconut milk, fast food, instant foods or foods contaminated with microorganisms that cause digestive infections.
Some of the things below can cause CHAPTER habits or CHAPTER nature:
1. consume foods that easily irritate digestion, such as spicy foods
3. digestive infections
4. food intolerance
5. food allergies
Discuss with your doctor, if you feel any accompanying complaints that bother you. The doctor will conduct an interview relating to complaints of defecation, then conduct a physical examination and necessary support. The results of the inspection will be a reference for care and handling.
Thus the info we can convey.
