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.

Scent switch-up

QMy hus­band and friends say I smell dif­fer­ent! Could some­thing be wrong?

An­drea, Swin­don

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.
