What is chronic diarrhea? I am a 27 year old female. I have been getting diarrhea for the last 6 months now and it concerns me. I only get it once every 3 daysand only first thing in the morning. The rest of my stools are normal in between. Is hiv causing this? Is diarrhea sa common symptom? Looking forward to your response Thankyou.

Response from Dr. Sullivan
