‘Erm, it’sa bit... personal’ Toilet trouble
Q There’s slimy mucus in my poo. Is it serious? Stella, Port Talbot
A Mucus on its own doesn’t generally mean much, though it can be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). But if you notice blood, or any change in your usual bowel pattern, that’s a potential alarm signal and you should see your GP.
