If you do not eat then it could be the problem, farting is the gas in the stomach. How does the gas enter it, either by you swallowing the gas or due to digestion of carbohydrates in the food that you eat. So you should be swallowing some by carbonated drinks, sodas, straw use, speaking or laughing while eating etc. So avoid these. To reduce the gas avoid cabbage, cauliflower, baked beans and broccoli and also pulses. To remember one thing it is said that lot of raw fruits and vegetables shall also cause gas creation in the stomach.

I have been farting a lot in the past 3 days and it smells bad. I don t understand why. I don t eat gluten, don t drink much. I have started my period today but it does not normally do that. I drink almond milk , I will eat lactose when I eat cheese, yogourt and in my coffee. I had fish each day for the past 3 days. I am trying to see what it could be but I m confused. Thanks

I have a five year old boy who farts a lot, he could clear a room . I was going to have him allergy tested to see if certain foods are causing him to fart(onions I think might not agree with him). I am worried because he has started school and I don t want him to be known as the boy whos always farting because as I said they are quite smelly is this a good idea??.

This is a really embarassing problem and I don't know if anyone can give me some advice. I have gas down below (vaginal area)-(similar to "fanny farts" -I do apologise for that phrase). It's like bubbles that pop and I can't control it - I get it all the time but sometimes it's worse than others. The hospital say that they can't do anything to assist - they don't think it relates to my back passage, even though it sometimes seems worse if I've had wheat. I've had it said in the past that I have a lot of discharge but it's strange because I feel so kind over dry down there. Can anyone help because it really gets me down. Thanks
