I am a 56 year old female. About 2 weeks ago, I started having a bowel movement without knowing it once a day. My other bowel movements would be long and about the shape of my largest finger. After about 5 days of bowel movements without knowing, the long finger shaped movements continued for a few more days. Since then, they are the same shape, just not long, but in 2-3" pieces. I have a bowel movement everytime I urinate. Most of my life, my bowel movements have occured only once every 3-4 days and would be very hard. I have no idea what is going on. Can you help?
