The rate of bowel emptying

During defecation, harmful components are eliminated from the digestive tract. If bowel emptying does not occur in a timely manner, the poisons and toxins accumulated in the feces begin to poison the entire body. Therefore, it is important to control the process of defecation, to know how often it is recommended to go to the toilet, to understand the indicators of the norm and deviations of this process.

Adults usually empty their intestines 1-2 times a day. The process of defecation can occur daily or every other day. If a person feels comfortable, then this frequency is considered the norm.

In some people, the process of bowel emptying occurs once every 3 days. If at the same time a person does not experience discomfort and does not suffer from any pathologies of the digestive system, then this frequency is also considered the norm.

What are the deviations of urination?

It is possible to talk about a deviation only if a person who previously visited the toilet 6 times a day began to urinate 10-12 times or 2-3 times a day. You can compare current indicators only with your own rhythm of emptying the bladder.

Increased urination

Normally, the number of urinations should not exceed 10 times. If the urges occur more often, then we can assume the development of pathologies in the body. However, frequent urination does not always indicate diseases.

Non-pathological causes

Increased emptying of the bladder can provoke such moments:


the use of drinks with a diuretic effect (lingonberry, cranberry juice, compote of viburnum, green tea);

physical activity;

hypothermia of the body;

the use of drugs with diuretic properties;

the end of the menstrual cycle.
