Pooping is a normal part of life that can tell you important things about your health. Though most people seem to shy away from even mentioning poop (except when you're a parent and poop becomes very important), there's no shame in developing a better understanding of what's normal, what's not, and what kind of information can be garnered from what ends up in the toilet bowl. You may think that you're supposed to poop daily, but what's normal varies for everyone. Still, there are some things that your body is trying to tell you if you don't poop every day, and you might be interested in learning more about them.
If you don't normally poop every day, your body might not actually be trying to tell you anything — it's just what's normal for you. But if you've previously pooped quite regularly every day (or even more than just once a day), skipping a day or even a couple might indicate that there's something going on that warrants your attention. If you don't poop every day, it doesn't automatically mean that there's something wrong, but paying attention to how frequently you go can give you some hints into whether you just need to change up your routine or have a more involved chat with your doctor at your next appointment.
