Question: I have been drinking prune juice to help soften BM and it has been working although my stools now seem to be darker. Could this be from drinking prune juice?
Brief Answer: good possibility Detailed Answer: Yes most often the color of stool depends on the food that you take. Since the color of the prune is dark it explains well. However stool microscopy is all it needs to confirm. Hope this helps
