The Doctors are joined by gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez and proctologist and colorectal surgeon Dr. David Rosenfeld to answer your burning questions about poop.
Best time of the day to poop?: "The best time of day to poop is when you feel like pooping. There's no special time," Dr. Rodriguez says. Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Rosenfeld explain that many people feel the need to go in the morning because of the food you eat the night before, followed by the food you consume in the morning and drinking coffee, which stimulates your body to go. They both stress that "forced pooping" is not ideal.
Why do I need to pee when I poop?: Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Rosenfeld explain this is due to your body's muscles relaxing when you go, which causes many to feel the need to also urinate.
Can you poop too much?: Dr. Rosenfeld, who shares that he eats a lot of fiber and often poop 4 times a day, says that there are instances where one can poop too often. These cases would involve having diarrhea and loose stool. They say if your bowel movements are smooth and firm then the number of times per day varies for everyone.
