Probiotics... any possible side effects?

After thousands of dollars in tests for my tummy... I went to see a naturopath who recommended that i take probiotics to ease my digestion....

Since starting them approx three days ago, i've noticed that I actually do #2 HEAPS more... at LEAST once a day, usually more... not like large stools (graphic i know) but i was all in all just please to have regular BMS...

However, i've noticed, my stool is now becoming very pale... is this a common side effect of probiotics? I cant find ANY information about it... but they're kind of the color of clay... im eating REALLY well, so it just seems weird.... I am also taking calcium/magnesium supplements.

Any ideas guys?

Usually bile in the stools. Since you been having more BMS maybe your removing bile salts that were in the intestines so they should clear up in a few days...
