This is NOT another thread about messing diapers. And apologies if you find this a bit gross, but I am genuinely interested.
Yesterday I was in a conversation here and found out that there is actually a large range for "normal" poop behavior.
I, myself, poop (not in diapers the vast majority of the time) around three times a day and I thought it was normal to at least poop once a day, but it seems not. This is what the internet says and actually repeats it in many sources.
"The average individual poops about once a day, releasing around one ounce of excrement per 12 pounds of body weight, meaning that a 160-pound person will produce just under a pound of poop a day. Although once a day may be the average, that does not necessarily make it the norm. As reported by Live Science, gastroenterologists agree that anything in the range of three times a day to three times a week is normal as long as the feces is neither too hard nor too loose."
So I would like to see if there is a "normal" or if people are spread across the spectrum. I also wonder if the "normal" is different if you wear diapers or not. Of course, we don't really have a control group, but I thought a poll would be interesting and the comments might shed even more light on this topic. I also wonder whether being bowel incontinent means you go all the time or much more than non-incontinent people.
Please feel free to take the poll and leave any comment.
