Is there something wrong with me? I never knew how much i pooped until I started counting... Is this bad? I seem to be fine, no constipation and dont notice any symptoms. I found out average was to poo once a day, I was pretty shocked when I heard this... I am even bulking right now with an excellent diet, even before I started bulking I still pooped about once a week.

I get plenty of fibers, vegetables and protein. In fact i seem to have fibers, protein and calcium almost in every meal.

I am also a very active person, I play lots of basketball and do running almost everyday. I'm very worried and help will be appreciated...

Thank YOU

Constipation? Missing Periods?
I usually poo once a day or once every two days but I haven't pooped for a week now. I am getting worried, because I eat a healthy diet and am active. Also, I don't feel like I need to poo.
I am a little more worried because I have missed my periods for two months now...
Help me! Sad

The 10 day pooper
I didnt see anything really helpful here. I am the same way as the original post. I eat normally drink alot of water and other liquids. I literally go about once every 10 days. I didnt realize it wasnt normal. I start feeling a bit fluffy or bloated around my meni cycle so will often take a laxative around that time. What does one do to train the body to go more? Should I be concerned? No body else seems to be?
