From what I've heard it means that your digestive system isn't all that efficient. I know that the average human being breaks wind approx 12 times a day but I think it's an indication of poor digestion/diet when they are frequently smelly, IYSWIM.

<whisper> I used to have this 'problem', but ever since moving to the coast it's gone! Must be the sea air - if only I could bottle some and send it to you, Beety... !

Pregnancy was a shocker for me too Twiglett - it was fart and run

Twinkie Thu 29-Apr-04 12:33:04

Apparently stretching like a cat helps release it - you know lean on elbows and poke bottom in air and stretch you back out - don't know why and can't rememebr where or why () I know that but it does work to a degree - you can get tablets too that absorb the wond and try not to take anything containing calium as they just makes it worse!!

I read that in on eof those " wirst case scenario dating" books

Codswallop Thu 29-Apr-04 12:35:59
