Coffee and bowel movements

I didn't know what topic area this should go under so please forgive me.
I was wondering if anyone else has this problem. Everytime I drink coffee my bowels move and my urine smells like coffee. Is this normal? Does anyone know why this happens.

Thanks,
Babygotback

Yes, it is normal. Coffee has compounds that increase motility in the stomach and can cause some irritation in the lining of the stomach, either causing diarrhea or increasing  bowel movements.

Thanks for the info. I think I will cut coffee out of my diet. I tried decaf but it still makes me a little edgy. The extra bowel movements are no fun either.

Thanks again,

I have been having this same problem, but I take the b12/myoden shot with the phen pills. Does anyone know if this is normal? This happens at different times of the day with a lot of gas with it. I am sorry to be so graphic.

Foldgers just came out with a nice coffee that's easy on your stomach.  Couldn't hurt right?

I don't believe there is anything wrong with you if this is happening... coffee contains a high level of antioxidants which cleans out your system... I'm no doctor but when that same thing happens to me I attribute it to the antioxidants cleaning out my system.  Before you give up coffee you should ask a doctor about it... it could be completely normal.  A controlled amount of coffee is actually healthy for you.
