‘Erm , it’s a bit... personal’
Sex is windy
QI always seem to fart during sex! Some guys find it a turn-off. Can I stop it? Isabella, Dymchurch
AYour rectum lies behind your vagina, and active sex can squeeze out any gas!
Try a poo before, if possible, and avoid gasproducers such as pulses. A change in position, or charcoal biscuits to absorb bowel gas, might help.
QMy husband and friends say I smell different! Could something be wrong?
AMost likely it’s recent illness, new pills, a change in diet, or maybe you’re sweating more due to extra exercise, or your menopause?
If no reason, check with your GP, as rarely, BO changes can point to diabetes, liver, kidney or thyroid problems.
