If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of soon-to-be college freshmen, there are probably some things on your mind that you’d rather not talk about. You know you’ll probably share a room with someone. And you know you definitely won’t have a private bathroom. So how are you going to find some occasional privacy? And how are you going to ever get used to using a bathroom that’s not your “home bowl”?
Just because you’re not moving your bowels every day doesn’t mean that you’re constipated. In fact, doctors consider it normal if you’re moving your bowels anywhere between three times a day and every three days. And in fact many people move their bowels even less frequently than that. If your stools are less than twice a week and you’re having symptoms associated with that infrequency such as gas, bloating and cramps, then you’re considered to be constipated.
