Light brown stool colour and undigested food
I was wondering if anyone had any advice:
I started taking probiotics about 2 years ago and they changed my life! I went from constipated, infrequent, hard stools to regular, daily 'perfect' dark brown banana shaped stools with no obvious bits of food in them.
Since January, the colour and texture has changed - they are still the correct shape and regular, but they are paler and i can see lots of bits of food in them. They look like coarse peanut butter in colour and the bumpy texture, although they are still th right consistency (ie firm, not really soft like peanut butter!).
I havent changed my diet (I am a v healthy eater in general plus i take lots of supplements) but i did have my first round of IVF in December - although it may be related to this, it is now 3 months since IVF so i thought this shouldnt cause symptoms any more. I feel great in general, though my nails/hair seem to be more brittle.
I have been to my doc and he says stools can change with food but this is a definate, persistant change and v different to what my stools have been like for the past 2 years.
Can anyone help so i dont worry that i have a horrible disease please....
