    So I have my 2nd year law exams coming up which are terrifyingly hard and I seem to go and poop at least 8 times a day (I wish I was exaggerating). Is that normal?

    Without being too yuck, no, but my ******* itself hurts. It feels like I'm trying to squeeze a needle out of it. (I'm so sorry for the graphics)

    Pooping a lot can be symptom of stress. Whenever I am panicky or stressed, one of the first things that happens to me is I start to **** a lot. I spend more time on the toilet than off it when I am really anxious and I am sure your upcoming exams will be causing you a lot of stress so that could be a big reason for your excess pooping.

    Yeah I thought it would be my stress/anxiety too, as right now I am my most stressed/anxious. But then at the same time, I wasn't sure if there was a link or not, and if it was normal or not. I'll pay a visit to my doctor though, thank you!

    There's your answer.

    This isn't generally normal, but for your condition it is as you seem to be showing symptoms of anxiety and stress. Stress can cause bowel problems and bad digestion. Can I ask what your eating habits are like recently? Are they different to usual - do you eat a lot/little?

    Try some techniques to calm yourself such as doing an activity you love or even meditation and breathing techniques (4-7-8 breathing exercise is really great, give it a try). Exercise will solve everything though, even a brisk 15 minute walk in fresh air will do you good and also help you revise better. Apart from that, don't worry so much and believe in yourself.

    Give it a few days and if nothing is working, I know it's embarrassing but try your GP

    Exam stress always affected my digestive system. It's a very demanding time. Reduced my libido too, which takes something. Apparently men can only focus on one thing intently at a given time period.
