What Is Normal Bowel Function?
Normal bowel function is a tricky balance between two things: frequency and consistency. It's normal to empty your bowels anywhere from three times per week to three times per day. Believe it or not, some people poop after every meal.
Constipation is common among all ages and populations in the U.S.
If you're straining to empty, feeling bloated, or having trouble buckling your pants, you might have constipation. We can help.
Pooping your pants is never normal, yet it's as common as asthma.
Accidental bowel leakage, also known as fecal incontinence (FI), is defined as the accidental loss of stool in a socially unacceptable way. FI can range from brown staining on your underwear and difficulty wiping clean following a bowel movement to full bowel accidents of formed stool.
