The amount of toilet paper required varies widely depending on the consistency of the stool and your "skill" with toilet paper use.

Some people who have trouble in this area find it useful to try to time their bath or shower to occur directly after their bowel movements.

Feel free to ask a follow-up question.

Is it possible your issue is not inadequate cleaning but rather leakage? The way to tell them apart is to try showering throughly after a few bowel movements. Then put underwear on. If in a few hours (without any further bowel movements) you notice significant soiling, then your problem is likely leakage and you need to discuss this with your MD>

If there is nothing there in that circumstance then just try to follow the advice I gave above.

And a BONUS is always appreciated.
