I’d like to get a lady to poop a poop that is type 2 on the Bristol Stool Form Scale. Of course, I must find a lady who’s up to it first. For those who did obtain that, what did you do? Did you or the person you watch take Imodium and fiber? If no, then would did you do? What was the circumference, length, and consistency? Side question: did you or the person you watch also hold it in for a few days? If yes, how long and how did it feel? How did you make yourself hold it in successfully?
I currently have a GI problem that’s preventing me from pooping big. I’m seeing a doctor about it. I’d like to try the tricks you used once I start pooping big again.
I had GI problems for years from medication, and I found that 1) Probiotic designed for IBS-D (the kind of IBS that causes diarrhea) 2) Psyllium husk capsules (1 a day) and 3) bran cereal helped me get some surprisingly big poops. Never consistently, even though I kept the same diet each day. But I did poop each day, and had no need to hold back for long (except, of course, to enjoy that “full” feeling.) Over time (about a year) my body seems to have adjusted itself. I don’t need these aids on a daily basis, once a week usually keeps me firm and strong.
I have read that taking too much probiotics — or the wrong kind of them (there are several strains available) — can make digestive issues worse. Same for fiber. I was told to start low, smallest dosage (i.e. 1 capsule a day) probiotic and see what happens. I got some “Digestive Advantage IBS Intensive Bowel Support” — available at pharmacies and grocery stores in the US and tried it. After the first capsule, My poops were much harder. I repeated the second day and they were even firmer. By day three, I was constipated! So I didn’t take any for a day, and things came out fine (once they actually came out)! So I think you may have to experiment. We are all different and respond to medicines and foods very differently. I found that once a week, a capsule after dinner, keeps everything running smooth and firm.
Also, on most supplement packaging, they tend to recommend maximum dosages because that uses up more product faster and gets them repeat sales.
