| | Sudden Change in stool consistency
Hi, i'm 17 years old and have nobody to talk to this about other than my mother who just blames me as if i'm suddenly not pooping right and if i just think really hard about what i'm doing wrong i can correct it, but i can't.
My whole life i've had normal bowel movements, never thought twice about the topic of pooping. It's a pretty basic process, you feel like you have to ****, you go to the toilet, push a bit, wipe maybe once or twice, and get on with your day without thinking of it again.
But a few months ago in about October 2011, my stools suddenly became extremely soft. Like I'll sit on the toilet and i'll push as if I would for a normal BM and it all just sort of flows out really fast and I don't really feel my butt "seal up" as it should after a nice solid bowel movement. When I wipe there is either alot of diarrhea-esque fecal matter on the toilet paper which is quickly wiped away and i'm left with seemingly limitless amounts of fecal matter in my anus. No matter how many times I wipe there is always a little tiny streak of fecal matter on the paper. This causes me go through 3/4 of a roll before I give up and try to get on with my day normally without feeling like a dirtbag. I've tried taking Citrucel and it helped for a week or two, but now the soft stools are back and the fiber has no effect on them.
I haven't changed my diet signifigantly I eat the basic diet of any other 17 year old I don't know what's causing it. There's no pain when I have to go, no blood in the stool or anything like that. My mom is gonna take me to the doctor soon I want to have some idea of what it could be, i'm so scared of living with this my whole life. I'm 17 years old I shouldn't have to be scared of taking a **** it really shouldn't be a bad experience at all.
Someone please help
