Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you have dysentery then the bowel movements are increased.Increased bowel movements can lead to pre term labour so it is necessary to get treated for dysentery.So please consult a doctor to get examined and treated for dysentery to avoid any further problem.
Thanks

For the past two days I have had orangish-clay colored stools. I have had them occasionally before. I had my gallbladder removed in November of 2012. Just to give you an example...

I always have a bowel movements first thing in the morning, usually within the first hour of waking up. Lately I have been getting nauseous just prior to going to the bathroom, feeling incredibly sick. I run to the bathroom and once I go, I feel fine and the nauseous feeling goes away. My body has also decided that it doesn t want to digest food very well. I am passing a lot of undigested vegetables and grain, including carrot, red peppers, black beans, beets, and whole quinoa. I get some light cramping and pains in my sides and lower abdomen, and my stool is changes consistency all the time from soft and loose, to very firm. But it is never watery or diarrhea. My doctor suspects IBS but has not done any testing yet. Are my symptoms characteristic of a more serious disease, like colon cancer or Chron s?
