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.

I normally go a couple times a day, both in the morning. I do take a multivitamin capsule the prior night that tends to soften things. I knew a girl once that went once a week, you know that's unhealthy!

I used to go once a day, but it was getting annoying sometimes fighting to pass a dry brick. (sometimes, I swear, sideways) My body just dehydrates things a little too fast for that. So I tried to adjust myself to two a day, one in the morning and another sometime in the early evening. Half the amount, but also more comfortable to pass as it's nowhere near as solid. Occasionally I get off my game and have to deal with one or two "brick mornings" before I can get back on schedule. At least for me, it requires deliberate planning.

I voted for ''completely irregular.'' Some days I might go four times, other days not at all. I kind of live in a state of chronic ''almost-constipation'' - I can go, but there's a chance it's going to involve straining. For me, it's usually hard little turds but sometimes veers off into huge, painful wad territory. I'm also pretty much always torn up down there, with bleeding after a bowel movement.

Feels like after every meal lol.

More likely, twice a day. And I eat a fiber bar.

I'm also 33, which I understand affects things

usually multiple times can be quite an iritant as it makes picking a specific diaper/knowing which one I'll need dificult or if I need to suplement it

usually about 3-4 times though

It is normally once a day for me, but it can be several times a day if I am dealing with IBS symptoms.

I'm pretty regular when it comes to bowel movements. Usually once a day.

After thinking about it a bit, perhaps ''completely irregular'' isn't the best term for my bowel habits. I'd say on average, I go at least once a day, but like I stated earlier, it can really vary widely for me.

It's completely irregular for me. I can go four to five days without needing to go, and then go twice in one day afterwards. There's no pattern whatsoever.

I don't keep track. If we're talking specifically in diapers, I don't often. The cleanup is too inconvenient to make it appealing most of the time.

I actually have 3-4 bowel accidents a day, including an accident during my sleep. It's actually very unusual, I can't feel an urge or anything. I only know when it starts passing filling the diaper with no we l warning >.<

Generally between once per day and once every other day.

hmmm...years ago I used to think people pooped the same amount as I do, but now I know different. I'm not even represented on this poll. I usually poop between 3 and 4 times a day, but on bad days it can be as many as 7 times. I have suffered from bowel urgency and frequency for as long as I can remember. Diet is an important factor here and if I eat poorly then it rises to 5, 6 and 7 times per day. So by eating well, I keep it down around 3 or 4 times.

Yes. Sorry Spaz. I realised after I set it up that I should have had a selection for more than 3 times a day but I couldn't find a way to change it.

It must be difficult to always eat well.

When I was a teenager I only went once a week but now in my twenties I go about once every other day.
