Hello aroxntissa;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The number of times you pass stools 5-6 per week is absolutely normal and you don't have problem of constipation.Constipation can be said only when a person does not pass stools or does not have the urge to pass stools even after 3 days.So you need not worry you are fine.
Thanks

Defecating Twice a Day is considered normal. Your seem to be doing pretty fine.
