Re: Pooping problem?

There is a normal reflex in the bowel called gastro-colic reflex that creates the urge to go about 1/2 hr after a meal. Since you have to walk to school at 8:00, right when your reflex may be working after a 7:30 breakfast, I would try getting up a little earlier and eating at 7:00 or 7:15 at latest, so you have an extra 15 minutes to sit on pot, relax, and go before school. It is much harder to shift your natural BM time to 12 hr later in day. If you ignore the urge to go, the rectum desensitizes to the pressure and you become constipated, which makes the whole process more of a problem.
