    Common Unusual Bowel Movement Types

    Some common irregularities that people experience in the bowel activities include:

    Depending on the frequency and severity of abnormal bowel activity, it is important to find and relieve the cause of the problem.

Assuming that causal factors from one’s life can be eliminated and that the symptoms are severe or persistent, it is important to consult with a health professional.
