Bowel movements occur more or less often than usual

Bowel movements occurring more or less often than usual is one of three symptoms for diagnosing IBS, as measured by the medically approved IBS Rome IV Criteria. If symptoms persist at least once a week for 3 months with this type of pain along with one more symptom on the Rome IV criteria, you most likely have IBS.

If your symptoms do not exactly fit the criteria, it is still possible for you to have IBS. Learn about how it can start and some other common symptoms of IBS here.
