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.

  • Type 4 is considered a well-formed bowel movement—described as smooth, soft, sausage- or snake-shaped, and free of lumps or excess liquid
  • Type 1 or 2 is often considered constipation, while 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.
