Question: How big around should poop be?

An average bowel movement should be between four and eight inches long and have the consistency of peanut butter. The Bristol stool chart (see above) is a handy medical aid for classifying stool. A shape similar to any of Types 1-3 may indicate constipation, while something more akin to Types 6 or 7 means diarrhea.

What is the normal diameter of poop?

Normal stool is about one to two inches in diameter. Stringy poop is narrow and, in some cases, almost flat, giving it a stringy appearance.

Why is my poop big around?

Extremely large poops may be the outcome of eating a very large meal or the result of chronic constipation that alters your bowel habits. If youve tried increasing your physical activity and upping fiber and water intake, and your poops still fill the toilet, its time to talk to your doctor.
