I have been having loose stool for the last 2 years and there is no stomach pain or any other problem

Hi I am a 30 year old female I have been having loose stool for the last 2 years sometimes the loose stool is mucusy(I think that is how it is spelled). I use the restroom about 4 to 8 times a day. I have changed nothing in my diet and I have lost no weight. There is no stomach pain or any other problems that I can tell. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You in advance for your help.

You must go for stool investigations, as Dr. Ramesh wrote there is a possibility of warm infestation so this can not be ignored.

Hi, thanks for good query,
Don't worry about your problem. It is clear that in case of amoebic or bacillary dysentery you will have abdominal pain. As per you statement it is not that. What ever it may be forget about it, try the following medicine. You will definitely have benefit. Take Racecadotril capsules twice a day for one week and Stibs sachet weekly one with warm water or with any drinking item for two months. Let me know your result, god bless you.

Hi, Pamela,
As you got long history of having loose stool it require investigations,
You go for stool test for any infection like bacterial or amoebic.
Chronic Amoebiasis is very common problem going for pretty long time,there is possibility of having warm infestation.
Other possibility is having IBS or Colitis.
Ok and bye.
