Your bowel movements can take on many appearances as far as size and color. If you are a bit constipated, it can look like little balls.

It could be as simple as a lack of water. I live at high altitude, 7,000 feet and that's what happens when I drink too little water...and lack of fiber, maybe.

If your feces looks like marbles or balls, and are hard to pass, you are probably constipated. Try eating more fiber and drinking more fluids to get back to normal.

Why would you not have bowel movements very often and when you do it is green and runny?

Not having many bowel movements can come from not drinking enough water (to flush your system), not eating enough fiber (like raisen bran and breads) and a host of other reasons. Runny green bowel movements can come from eating green foods (like broccoli, cabbage, etc). Stress for men and for a woman her monthly cycle can also cause runny bowel movements.

What sypmtoms would cause increase bowel movements?

Symptoms do not cause increased bowel movements. Increased bowel movement is a symptom of bowel disease which usually presents with abdominal pain and diarrhoea, and this can be caused by infection like gastroenteritis which can be viral or bacterial. Inflammatory bowel disease like crohn's and ulcerative colitis is another cause. Pancreatic insufficiency can causes diarrhoea due to malabsorption. People with nervous disposition can get nervous diarrhoea related to stress and also spastic colon or irritable bowel can cause diarrhea and cramp like abdominal pain. Increased bowel movement will also be seen in bowel obstruction with increased effort of the bowel to push the bowel content through the obstruction.
