Our expert says:
The fact that you have 4 bowel movements a day could be due to your very high fibre intake because you are a vegetarian. However, it is always a good idea to have a medical checkup when your bowel movements change. You say you have had this high frequency for 6 months. Were you a vegetarian before it started? if so, a medical checkup is indicated because you may suffer from Irritable Bowel Disease (IBS) of the diarrhoea variety or some other underlying condition (an infection, etc). Have a checkup just in case.
