    Pretty much every day. More than once if I’m stressed or ate something that didn’t agree with me, and sometimes not for a couple days if I go on vacation (esp. camping, I don’t really consciously “hold it in”, but subconsciously I resist!).

    I tend to have one once a day while Fiance can have more than one a day on the same diet. When I was in a car accident I had to go without food for a day and then stay on liquids while they decided if I needed surgery. Between all that and the medicine my system was a little out of whack. The hospital wouldn’t let me leave until I had one. They said that one a day was average for people when they told me they couldn’t let me go yet. So… as far as those medical professionals are conserned… once a day. Everybody is different though. Some foods just process differently.

    It is not a good day in my house if it doesn’t start out with a poop.  My Fiance gives me a hard time but having a digestive disorder really does mean that sometimes sh*t rules my life.  I don’t know what I’m going to do when I get pregnant~ I hear that just screws things up royally.  I’m a seriously unhappy camper if there is no visit to the procelain throne for even 1 day.

    After 4 years, my Fiance is still convinced that something is wrong with me.

    I’ve always been a 1-2 times a week kinda girl..while he is like a 2-5..to (every 10 minutes).. a day kinda guy.

    He has intestinal issues though, and his best friend has IBS. They are both engineers and like to problem solve way too much. Therefore, I am frequently a topic of discussion as they (in their minds) try to figure out how I am not dead.

    I think it’s funny you mention the acronym cause even after all this time on the bee, I still think of bowel movement every time I see the acronym Bridesmaid or Best Man (obviously referring to bridesmaid).  Same with STD (obviously Save the Date) but I think sexually transmitted disease.

    Anyways, to answer your question Tongue Out I poo every other day-ish.

    I usually POOP every day! Depends on what I’ve eaten or TTOM I usually Poop twice. My fiance is a twice a day man, morning when I’m still sleeping and when he gets home from work. I know this as we don’t have a door to our ensuite. We holler at each other if we are in the bedroom. LOL! After 11 years of being together sometimes POOP is still a problem between us. He ensures me at least once a week that his POOP doesn’t stink – it smells like roses! BOYS! ~Shakes head~

    I try to go as much as possible throughout the day. I really enjoy my time on the loo – I do my best thinking there! Plus, there’s something quite satisfying about having a big poo…

    On the other hand I am convinced that my Fiance has something very VERY wrong with him. His body seems to ‘save it up’ as it were, then go once a month.

    Which means that Every. Single. Bloody. Month. I have to call someone to unblock the toilet. EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH! GAH!
