Normal Bowel Movements
Do you know what a normal bowel movement is?
Most of us spend most of our time trying not to think about our bowel movements, so it’s no surprise that many people do not know what a “normal” bowel movement is. The fact is that there is no 1 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. Less than 3 movements a day may indicate constipation, and more than 3 watery stools a day could indicate diarrhea.
Size and shape
A bowel movement should be soft and easy to pass, though some people may have harder or softer stools than others.
Stool should be brown or golden brown, be formed, have a texture similar to peanut butter, and have a size and shape similar to a sausage.
Constipation is a very common problem and is estimated to be the cause for approximately 2 million doctor visits each year. Constipation is hard, dry, lumpy stools that are difficult or painful to pass that may be accompanied by bloating and discomfort. Chronic dehydration, lack of exercise, and low amounts of dietary fiber can all lead to constipation. Drinking enough water each day and avoiding caffeine can help prevent dehydration. At least 30 minutes of exercise (even brisk walking is better than no aerobic activity) most days of the week is recommended for better overall health. There should be enough fiber in the diet to insure that stools are soft and pass painlessly and easily.
Diarrhea is loose, watery stool that occurs more than 3 times in 1 day. For most people, diarrhea is a common problem that usually lasts a day or 2 and does not need any treatment. Causes include infection, side effects of medication, and food intolerance. Diarrhea may need treatment if it lasts more than 3 days and is accompanied by fever, severe pain or dehydration, or if it looks black, tarry, or contains blood.
Change in bowel habits
A normal bowel movement is different for each person and may vary in consistency and frequency. There are, however, several indications that a bowel movement is abnormal and may be the sign of a more serious problem.
A change in bowel habits includes any constant change in bowel frequency, color, consistency, or shape of stools. This sign warrants special concern in people who are over the age of 50 years.
Blood. Frank blood in the stool is never normal, and could be a result of several conditions that range from mild, such as hemorrhoids, to serious, such as infection or colon cancer. Bloody stools should always be evaluated by a physician.
Black stools. Black, tarry stools with a foul odor can be the result of eating certain foods, taking iron supplements, or possibly from internal bleeding.
Red or maroon stools. Red or maroon stools could be from something benign, such as eating red colored foods or it could be caused by several different conditions including hemorrhoids, anal fissures, colon polyps or colon cancer, diverticular bleeding, or inflammatory bowel disease.
Green stool. Green stool may be caused by green or artificially colored foods, iron supplements, or decreased colonic transit time.
Pale or clay colored stools. Stools that appear pale or look like clay could be the result of lack of bile salt (which gives stool a brownish color), antacids, barium from recent barium enema test, or hepatitis.
Unusual Colors of Stool - Black Stool
Black, tarry stool could be benign -- but it might also be serious.
Black, tarry stools with a foul odor can be the result of eating certain foods, taking iron supplements, or possibly from internal bleeding. If the black color is from blood, it is known as "melena." The color indicates that the blood has been in the body for some time, and is coming from higher up in the gastrointestinal tract.
A black stool caused by food, supplements, medication, or minerals is known as "false melena." Iron supplements, taken alone or as part of a multivitamin for iron-deficient anemia, may cause stools to be black or even greenish in color. Foods that are dark blue or black in color may also cause black stools. Substances that can cause false melena are:
A physician should be consulted immediately if black stools can not be attributed to a benign cause such as an iron supplement or a food.
The black color alone is not enough to determine that it is blood that is being passed in the stool.
Therefore, a physician may order a fecal occult blood (FOBT) test to measure the amount of blood. An FOBT is a simple test for a patient—it only requires that a stool sample be collected at home and dropped off at the physician’s office or a laboratory. Melena is diagnosed if 6 tablespoons (200 milliliters) of blood or more is found in the stool passed.
The blood could be caused by several different conditions including a bleeding ulcer, gastritis, esophageal varices or a tear in the esophagus from violent vomiting (Mallory-Weiss tear). The tarry appearance of the stool is from the blood having contact with the body’s digestive juices.
After melena is diagnosed, a physician may order other diagnostic tests to determine the cause and exact location of the bleeding. This could include x-rays, blood tests, colonoscopy, gastroscopy, stool culture, and barium studies.
Causes of Melena
Bleeding ulcer. An ulcer is a type of sore on the lining of the stomach which can cause bleeding and result in melena. Contrary to popular belief, stomach ulcers are not usually caused by stress or spicy food (although these can aggravate an already existing ulcer). In fact, they are typically caused by an infection with a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Antibiotics are normally prescribed to eliminate the infection.
Another cause of stomach ulcers is the prolonged use of pain medications known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). NSAIDs can irritate the stomach by weakening the ability of the lining to resist acid made in the stomach. For this same reason, NSAIDs have an adverse effect on Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. NSAIDs include common over the counter drugs such as ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, and aspirin. Stomach ulcers caused by NSAIDs usually heal after the offending drug is discontinued.
Gastritis. Gastritis is the inflammation of the stomach lining and can be caused by overindulging in alcohol or food, eating spicy foods, smoking, infection with bacteria or prolonged use of NSAIDs. Gastritis can also develop after surgery or trauma, or be associated with already existing medical conditions.
Esophageal varices. Esophageal varices are dilated veins located in the wall of the lower esophagus or upper stomach. When these veins rupture they may cause blood to appear in the stool or vomit. Esophageal varices are a serious complication resulting from portal hypertension brought on by cirrhosis of the liver.
Mallory-Weiss tear. A tear in the mucous membrane that joins the esophagus and the stomach may bleed and result in melena. This condition is fairly rare (occurring in 4 of 100,000 people), and may be caused by violet vomiting, coughing, or epileptic convulsions.
