Its very normal to have mucus in your stools, in fact EVERYONE has it. As Victoria said, its natural for our colons to produce it to keep things moving along so to speak. With IBS and other bowel problems, you have strong contractions in your colon which leads to produce a lot of shedding with the mucus which tends to produce more than the general population, that is why you can see it. Its normal and not too much to worry about
unless you are seeing blood mixed in.
