My body smells like fart and I know fully well I am not farting. The farting smell comes and goes every time in the day. I do not have a clue where the smell is coming from. I have had a blood test on every thing they all came back as normal. Lately I am finding it very difficult to go to the loo the way I normally do; and when I do go it's incomplete. In addition belly is always hurting and cramping. I drink plenty of water every day, fruit/ veg the whole lot but still have this problem. My GP is not helping. What is wrong with me?

I have exactly the same problem, can really sympathise with you. I am 30 and it has only come on me recently that i have noticed. I have even been to the doctor about it, to no avail. It is extreamly embarassing, having to go on courses and in quiet rooms amoungst people. It is uncontrolable, and unbearable. Sometimes has happens when i havent even eaten. I would really like to find an answer to this. It is causing a great deal of stress
I totally agree with you both i am in the exact same position it's is awful I thought I was the only one, I have tried appsolutly everything, I thought it may have been because I was constipated I have changed my diet taken laxatives, stopped taking nutrient tablets from holland and barrets which the doctor advised and it it still happening, I have taken days of college and been late nemouros times as I was afraid and embarrassed of this happening really hope someone will give us some good advice And a way of coping and making this go away 😞 really fed up now!
how do you stop farting in your sleep?
I get vaginal wind, which just sounds like I'm farting it's very embarassing, as I have no control over it. Help what can I do so it doesn't happen to me, I'm 43 ?
Hi, When I was younger I hardly ever farted but now am farting a lot. I am lucky that it isn't smelly but it is so noisy...the trouble is I can't stop it escaping and so is very embarrassing when in company. Also I sometimes pass mucus. Please help
hiya. im having the same trouble after having my gallbladder remoced. im currently having tests for bile reflux. if u google it u shud b able to check symptoms. good luck x
when I have sex I make a funny fart noise from my vagina but it doesn't smell. I don't know whether this is normal but I get embarrassed every time this happens, my boyfriend accuses me of farting when I am not what is this? help? from jelena
That is called a queef. A vagina fart.
that's very normal, you are probably very wet when it happens
when i have sex i get lots of gas pushed into my vagina then when my vagina is full of gas it come out and it sounds like im farting is this normal
I wondered this as well so i asked my doctor about it and she said it was normal and nothing to worry about, so i mentioned it to my friends to check who also agreed they get it at times. It doesnt bother my boyfriend at all but i just ask to change position as it tends to help or maybe ask him to slow down a bit, just so it doesnt completely ruin my mood.
Thats normal. not pleasent and can be very embaressing but it is normal. most girls get it, its defo the position in which it is, usually certain positions let air in and its just the release of it.
I have IBS and bad flatulence but the thing that is bothering me the most is the fact that smells just leak out without me farting and my stomach constantly rumbles and produces a smell. Does anyone have any idea how to stop this? Work are findng it unbearable.
I have had the4 same problem for 3 yrs and have tried so many things. Lately I have discovered VSL No 3 (available on web) which provide 450 billion healthy bacteria to the gut. I also take Silicea which captures pathagens and toxins. If you find anything else which helps, please let me know. Hope this helps. Barbara
Try maybe drinking more water.If not that please consult your doctor or GP.and they'll give you more advice about.
hi am 21 and only with my parter at the minute i ave been getting vaginal wind, which just sounds like I'm farting it's very embarrassing and it only happens when we are having sex and i move, and when the air is their i dry out could you tell me why this is happening and if i could do any thing 2 stop it from happening thank you.
this is simply coused by the air getting trapped during intercouse and is perfectly normal,the air simply gets released when you move suddenly afterwoods, please dont worry about this! maybe try other positions that might work better for you,somtimes a diffrent position helps
