Incomplete BM

I am suffering from an odd bowel pattern.

I feel the urge to have a BM. I have a small, well-formed BM that passes easily. But, it is much smaller than a normal BM. I still feel like I need to go!

But nothing else passes. No problems passing gas.

I'm having 3-5 small, well-formed BMs that pass easily per day.

No abdominal cramping or distention.

Coincidentally, I am feeling anxiety and stress from work and home. But, I would imaging I would have diarrhea if anxiety were causing changes in bowel patterns.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Incomplete BM


I'm having the same odd patterns and I know stress caused the problem.

Mine started with anxiety and depression from another health issue.

I never had diarreha more on the constipation side. I'm trying TCM and supplements to get back to normal. Before I usually had one BM a day and felt empty.

You may want to try a magnesium supplement and flax seed oil.

I'll keep you posted on what helps me.

Re: Incomplete BM

I suggest that you start taking a water soluble fiber supplement like Metamucil. It will bulk up your stool and make your BMs more regular and complete.

It also works for diarrhea as well as constipation. For your intestines to work right -- you need 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily and it need to be a combination of insoluble fiber and soluble fiber.

Also, you need to drink enough water daily--- your body is about 70% water so any other stuff you drink has to be converted by your liver for you body to use water!!!

Small BMs usually indicate that you are not drinking enough water ---

Re: Incomplete BM

You could have a rectocele. Do a little research.
