Identify your treatment goals with the Bristol Stool Form Scale
The Bristol Stool Form Scale is a visual representation of the 7 different types of Bowel Movements that you can have. A “4” bowel movement—described by the scale as smooth, soft sausage or snake-shaped—is free of lumps or excess liquid and is considered well-formed. A “Type 1 or 2” is often considered constipation, while a “Type 6 or 7” is often considered diarrhea.
While it might seem awkward to talk about, telling your doctor which type or types of stool you typically have can help you both create a treatment plan that works for you and your body.
