Some medicines may cause you green colored stool, but it is more common in children than in adults. But if the green color stays for more than three days then consult a doctor specially when the color is observed after taking an antibiotic.
Passing green stool may point towards an unhealthy diet, stress, or medical conditions that might be affecting the body. Most often, the condition is a repercussion of ingesting certain foods. Green vegetables are known to be a common cause of green-hued feces. The same may occur post consuming medications or supplements. In some cases, green stool may indicate the presence of an infection in older kids and adults.
The liver produces bile juice that is bright green in color. It is stored in the gallbladder from where it passes down to the intestinal tract. When it travels down the intestine, the color changes from bright green to brown. During normal digestion, the process takes enough time for the bile to change color. However, when bile reaches the intestine faster than normal time, it gets mixed up with the stools without change in color. This is called 'rapid transit' or 'decrease colonic time'.
Come pregnancy and expect significant changes in the body posture. If that wasn't enough, the increasing belly size with each passing day causes hot flashes, headaches and muscle aches, thanks to hormonal imbalance during pregnancy. It is observed that pregnant women also experience green bowel movement. The normal color of fecal matter is light brown and so excretion of green stools is definitely unacceptable. Is green color of stool attributed to hormonal changes or are there any other causes? Let's find out.
