I'm worried. I've been having green stools for like the past week or so and it's really not normal. I also started spotting a week before my period (I'm on the pill) and sex is sometimes painful. I don't know whats wrong with me. Help. Am I just not eating right (about the poo)? Is it that I got really drunk last weekend and threw up and stuff (I never wana so that again)? Could I have cancer? Am I dieing? Help!

Did you start new vitimins? Often iron causes a green stool. IT should not be indicitive of a health problem. But when in doubt go to the dr. You can always call and ask to speek with a phone nurse to see if you should come in. Painful intercourse could be a sign of a problem. But I have no idea what the prolem would be best see a DR.

Green stool generally indicates food that hasn't been fully digested (the things we learn from babies!). However, it's not usually an ongoing problem. Do call your doctor, please, and ask what may be up.
