Intake of suppository or laxative for stimulating bowel movement may cause you green stool. It is not necessary that all laxatives will result in green stool. If you observe green color with some traces of blood in stool, then it can be a medical emergency.
In case the person is having green vegetables in moderate amounts and also is not suffering from intestinal problems then green poop may be due to intake of medicines like antibiotics.
It is said that a diet that a pregnant woman follows, influences the color of bowel movement. During pregnancy, doctors often advice women to follow a healthy diet. Having nutritious meals during pregnancy greatly reduces the risk of birth defects in babies. It is very important that a pregnant woman gets adequate vitamins and minerals for a healthy delivery. Pregnant women tend to eat green leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli as they are jam-packed with essential nutrients. The chlorophyll (green pigment) present in these vegetables is the one that mixes with the fecal matter, causing green bowel movement. In simple words, excess consumption of green veggies is bound to change the stool color, which is usually green.
Stool softeners are safe, however, they should be taken only once in a while. Moreover, one should also be aware of the different side effect ssuch as cramps, throat irritation, diarrhea, allergies, etc. that can occur after taking some over-the-counter stool softeners. Even the best stool softeners in the drug stores have side effects, thus, it is always important to consult your health care provider before taking any over-the-counter stool softeners.
