Is it bad to hold your poo ?

Is it bad to hold in your poo and does it harm you in any way ? Whenever I hold in my poo because I can't go around others or its too embarrassing I always end with tummy pains and have loose stool after not going for a day or two . Is this normal??

Don't hold your poo in any longer than necessary.
That's why you having stomach pains because you are holding your poo in far too long.

Everyone is completely different when it comes to there toilet issues especially poo 💩 it's not unusual not to go for a poo 💩 for a few days as lots of this is down to what you are eating plus how your body digestive system works for excess.
Use gloves???

Yes the pains always go after passing a bowel movement. It's just my poo is often sudden and watery when I haven't been is this because I've held it too long ?

If a scientist says this... it must be true! So don't risk explosion! Also forget wearing gloves...just don't hold it. Straight in a toilet and don't look back....

Don't mess with your body's mechanisms. If you need to pee or poop do so immediately for your comfort and to prevent potential damage.
