I have days where everytime or almost everytime I go to pee, I end up having a small bowel movement too--this in addition to my big, regular one early in the morning. I'm on BC so I don't have periods anymore, so I don't link this to a hormonal change. So long as I'm not hurting, not feeling the need to constantly go to the bathroom, and my stools are formed, I just ignore the fact that I poop many times a day, lol.

Scared,
Ya, I would say it is nothing out of the ordinary. Lots of women, including me, have more BM's when they have their period. Too many factors contribute: bloating, cramps, hormone surges, water retention, change in eating habits, etc. Like what Keri said, so long as you're not hurting. Or bleeding from your rectum.

i am not doing any of those but i feel like crap. i had seven bowel movements yesterday and have already had one today. all of them were formed almost too hard. i cramped some yesterday but haven't today. my period stopped last nite. i have little to no appetitie and lots of gurgling and woozieness etc...this sucks. i also have a lot of sinus pressure in my head. im sure that is just the wacky spring like weather. i have not had any diharrea and i did have a mocha and bagel this am so i am assuming this is just my period and ibs. i guess if it were a virus i would have loose bowels or other symptoms etc....?

I agree this is nothing to worry about.  Hey, if I have 5 or 6 solid bowel movements a day, that's like the best scenario in the world!  When I get my period, my BMs are always a little more bizarre than usual (and that's saying a lot).  Give it another day or two and I'm sure you'll be good to go.
