Welcome to the site.
Well, you see it is because of your shift in the timings of meals by approximately 2 to 3 hours per meal plus absence of regular evening meals which together have contributed to your change in the defecation pattern. Earlier you used to take the evening meals which was essential for causing bowel movements in the evening but since you most often tend to skip the evening meals so there is no bowel movement in the evening and therefore whatever you have eaten since morning gets accumulated in the body and it takes two times of voiding to get rid of the feces of the previous day hence you feel the incomplete evacuation after first bowel movement the morning after.
This does not seem to be any organic or physical condition but this seems to be occurring due to change in eating habits, that's all. If you want to double check this then you may go back to your previous eating plan and stay put on the same for 3 to 4 weeks at least so that you can once again appreciate the two times that is morning and evening voiding of feces.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
Please kindly leave a POSITIVE RATING if you are satisfied with the answer.
Thanks for the inputs.
Well, it does not seem like that there is either chronic protozoal infection or onset of IBS from your symptoms, as such a minor change in defecation does not amount to be significant, however, you may get a stool routine microscopy examination done to see if there is any infective micro-organsisms or their cysts found in the stool. Following this investigation based on the finding your doctor may decide whether to pursue stool culture if at all the need arises.
So as such i do not feel there would be something significant of a finding upon examination but this would eventually put to rest your concerns. May i also add here that minor dietary changes can bring about this sort of minor change in defecation , so do not discount that plus also do consider the fact that with growing age ( although you are very young but still ) people tend to experience changes in their bowel as well as bladder habits without any major organic reasons.
I hope this sums it up for you.
