The frequency of stool can be 3 times a day, it is normal. It is quite difficult to ascertain the nature of disease (if any) with the frequency of stool. If you suspect a disease I would like to know about the consistency of the stool and if you have pain during stool. Do you have blood with the stool?

I will be waiting.
