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
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.
