How Do You Change Your Poop Schedule?

I know this sounds silly, but I'd like to change the time of day I go to the bathroom. I am like clockwork, 2pm everyday. I used to go first thing in the morning. That was great. I would then jump in the shower and be all clean and fresh. (Not that I am not clean after I go at 2pm) Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can go back to going to the bathroom in the morning? Thank you.

Well...I'm no nutritionist, but I used to go after breakfast. For a year now, I've been drinking 2 glasses of water as soon as I get up in the morning. That usually gets things moving within about 10 minutes.

I look forward to a thread full of euphemisms.

I drop the log(s) at random times. If the time that my ass says that it needs to be emptied isn't convenient, I hold it til it is.

Generally, unless it's a serious intestinal urge, you should be able to hold. If you constantly hold it (comfortably) til the time you want, your body should adapt.

If you really can't hold it, try to move your time slowly.

Happy poopin'!

I just read about this....seriously.

From what I understand...

Aberkok is right on the money. Digestion--be it two big glasses of water or a plate full of steak and eggs--gets the pipes rumbling. 10-20 minutes after feeding, your body is ready to let loose. The rest is easy: sit down, read a bit, give it a go. If nothing should happen--and I swear to all that is holy that a dozen different websites and my aunt, the registered nurse with 15 years experience in just about everything care related all agree--you should stick your finger up there and give it a go.

In fact....

Digital stimulation should be performed every day to stimulate bowel movement, until a pattern of regular bowel movements is established. Bowel movements may also be stimulated by using a suppository (glycerin or Dulcolax) or a small enema.
All the information seems to agree that the entire "bowel retraining process" should take about 2 weeks. According to them, as long as your diet and such remain relatively stable, then you should be a regular clockwork poop machine.

Jeez...my first post of anything substantial since I don't know when and it's about poop.

I don't know, but doesn't it take 24 hours for food to go through your body? So, if you eat a big meal at breakfast, 24 hours later it will be waste. I ate a big luch today and small breakfast and dinner, so I would guess that I will go to the bathroom around noon tomorrow.

Over time, that's how most people get hemorrhoids.
That's exactly what you shouldn't do.

If you feel the need to go, it's because you need to GO!

If you want to get your body back in a morning cycle, why not just give yourself an enema in the morning? - that should put you right back on schedule.

Oops - forgot a euphemism:

I'm guessing there's a connection to your eating habits as well... like when most of your digestion takes place. Perhaps before, you ate a heavier dinner or lunch or something, and now it's breakfast?

Well, I'm lucky to go once a day, so when I gotta go, I gotta go...

However, I've found that if I have a big ol' glass of fiber drink-mix with dinner at night, usually things get moving by the following morning. It all depends on your particular metabolism, though. Experiment with various times of fiber consumption and see if you can't, uh, shift things around to your liking...

Either that, or get some suppositories (anyone else's mom shove those up their asses as a baby?... no? Okay, just me.)

Eating triggers pooping since the body needs to make room in the bowels for the new food. At least that's how I figure it.

I do like Aberkok. A big glass of ice water soon as I wake up.(I also have a glass of water before bed)
Never, ever 'hold it'. You will end up constipated, which is a horrid feeling.

And I can't think of a euphemsim

Eating any meal will get your digestive reflexes (and hormones) working to make room for the new food, so I suggest eating breakfast first thing in the morning, and go to the bathroom sometime before leaving home

Not necessarily. But it may depend on your diet and activity level. If you don't eat a lot of fibre (i.e. less than 20g-40g/day) and don't exercise at all, you probably should start doing so if you want to be healthier. I think a daily bowel movement is considered a healthful "norm". But you don't want to force things, of course.... egh...

Actually not exactly true, you really shouldnt hold it in all the time but it is good to hold it in every now and then when you need to, this excercises the muscles so you wont have accidents when your older, also that does not give you hemorroids; that is from pushing and straining. it is not good to have a cycle it should be at random times and you should be able to hold it if you cant something is wrong and that is not normal.[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]

once a day is normal if more than even better it means your healthy if you poop every other day thats fine to, not a need for alarm but i dont think once a week is healthy in that case your diet would need to change.

I'm lactose intolerant, so I don't have much of a schedule. The only constant is that most of the time, I wake up late and don't have breakfast, so my digestive tract doesn't get moving in time for me to go before I shower, which annoys the hell out of me.

I double that on an average day. Even without lactose-induced megashits, I'd say 4, minimum.

A million years ago (pre-IBS-D), I went on a very strict, supervised diet, which included daily weigh-ins. Now, you don't want to go for your daily weigh-in carrying around a big poop in your gut, so first thing in the morning, they recommended that you nuke a cup of water mixed with a few tablespoons of lemon juice - like warm lemonade (no sugar). Worked like a charm.

Of course, at the time, I was eating VERY healthy foods - nothing pre-packaged or manufactured, no oils, no sugars, no breads, no nothin'. This may have had an impact on the ease of getting rid of things, I don't know, but give the warm lemonade thing a try and see if it helps.
