Bristol stool form chart

The Bristol Stool Form Chart is a medical aid designed to classify the form of stool (poo) categories. There are seven types of stools:

  • Types 1 or 2 indicate constipation

  • Types 3 or 4 are ideal stools as they are easier to pass

  • Types 5, 6 or 7 may indicate diarrhoea and urgency
