May is Pelvic Pain Awareness month and healthy bowel habits are important component to consider in overall pelvic health.

What is your poop telling you?

A lot of our clients with pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic pain, endometriosis, and prolapse have some trouble with their bowels. IBS and other bowel-related issues can cause abdominal pain, rectal pain, and pelvic floor problems. It’s a connection that is very important to consider!

Today we will discuss poop color, texture, and size. While many of us may turn our heads when we flush, there are some important details about your health that can be gathered from the color of your poop, so consider taking a gander at your poop before you flush it away.

Color

According to the Mayo Clinic, stool color can vary widely and still be considered normal. Most stool ranges in shades of brown and green. The variance in color is due to what you are eating as well as the amount of bile present in your stool. Bile is the fluid secreted by your gallbladder that digests fats in your GI system. Bile starts out a yellow-green color and slowly changes color from green to brown depending on what other substances are in your GI tract.

If your poop is bright red or black, you may have blood in your stool. If this is the case, go see a doctor.
