Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The delay in periods can be due to a hormonal disturbance. The farting suggests gas and indigestion.

I hope this information has been helpful for you.

I have had no major dietary changes. Is there an explanation for this? something to do with puberty or hormones or something? thanks.

I have been farting a lot lately, and they smell really bad, and a lot of the time I feel like they re uncontrollable. And when I say a lot, I mean like at least 5 times an hour. But I haven t been pooping as much as normal. I have a healthy diet with a lot of fruit, vegetables, nuts and protein and drink a little less than a gallon of water a day.

For the passed three months, my flatulence has grown out of control, and has increased in frequency dramatically, as well as acquiring an obnoxiously nauseating odor. In the passed, I have never had this problem. What has afflicted me and how do I get rid of it?
