Taking certain medications during pregnancy can also cause green bowel movement. For instance, pregnant women reeling under a sinus infection often use antibiotics to get relief. Defecation of green feces has been attributed to intake of these antibiotics. Green bowel movement after taking antibiotics is not uncommon and usually stops after the medication is halted. Reducing the dosage after consulting a doctor might also help to restore normal stool color.
A child's digestive system is very sensitive to different foods. The most common cause of food poisoning in children is E.coli. This bacterial infection can lead to dark green or light green stools. If the child suffers from abdominal cramps, fever and green stool is visible for three consecutive days, take your child to a doctor.
Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Pseudomembranous Colitis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome are intestinal disorders. Also called ileitis or enteritis, crohn's disease causes inflammation of the ileum due to which there is pain and discomfort in the lower sections of the digestive tract. Crohn's disease can lead to the intestines becoming sensitive and sore due to diarrhea. Ulcerative colitis is caused due to the inflammation of the intestinal lining. The intestinal lining is punctuated with ulcers, either scattered throughout or in the form of clusters. The large intestine -- when affected by the disorder -- may pose symptoms of diarrhea with stools being loose and slim in consistency also making the stool color green. Pseudomembranous colitis is the inflammation of the colon when an individual is administered with antibiotics. It may also be caused due to the overgrowth of the bacterium called C. difficile. These intestinal disorders may cause the stool to turn green in color with the consistency being very loose.
