Bowel Movements in the Evening
I usually have 1 or 2 bowel movements per day, in the morning and/or evening, but I spend most of my time at home and when I go out (usually to spend the day in the city), I won't have a BM until I get home in the afternoon or evening. I'm not holding anything in, I don't feel any pain, I just don't need to go, and as far as I'm concerned, it's a good thing. I don't want to have to go in public and I don't have time to in the morning. I'll get up around 7:30 AM and it'll take me about an hour and a half to get ready. Can your body tell when your busy so it can temporarily stop your digestive system? (Like when your asleep?)
I don't have any bowel problems like IBS or any problematic symptoms (though I am sensitive to fiber and avoid large amounts for this reason), but I am obsessive-compulsive and (probably unnecessarily) anxious about my bowel habits, I'm also very image conscious. I usually take up to half an hour on the toilet because I'm obsessed with getting everything out, for this reason I don't want to have to go in the morning or during the day when I go out, but I've never had to. Is this normal?
