What Causes ‘Sharting’ And How To Prevent It

Farting in public is quite embarrassing enough and it can get worse if you end up sharting, which is a combination of a shit and a fart, regardless of whether you are around people or all by yourself (no one wants that mess on their hands). You may laugh at the thought of a little bit of poop coming out when you fart, but it is possible. Some of you may have experienced it and some of you, who have mastered the art of emptying your bowels regularly, may have not. But you should not dismiss the fact that shit happens and it can happen to anyone anytime.

What Causes Sharts And How Can You Avoid Experiencing It Completely?

(The most common cause of sharts is the incomplete removal of stool from your bowels


The most common cause of sharts is the incomplete removal of stool from your bowels. If your bowel has too much stool in it, some of it may slip out when you pass air. It is not a problem that people frequently have but if it has happened to you before and you never want to experience it again or if you have never experienced it before and don’t ever want to in future, you need to make sure to let it all out every time you sit on the toilet. Take your time and read a paper if you have to, but just don’t get up if you still feel you have something left in your bowels.

Are You Sharting Regularly?


If you end up sharting every once in a while, there is nothing much to worry about. Such slip-ups can happen to anyone. But if you are sharting regularly, it means that there is something wrong with your digestive system. You may be intolerant to gluten, lactose, or fructose, all of which can cause diarrhea and can increase your chances of sharting. You may also be suffering from more serious conditions, such as ulcerative proctitis, hemorrhoids, rectal polyps, irritable bowel syndrome, and even bowel or rectal cancer. You need to be extremely cautious if your sharts are accompanied by bleeding but if it is just gas and poop coming out, you can let your guard down as it may not be indicative of a major health issue.

What Should You Do If You Are Sharting Regularly?


The first thing you should do if you are sharting regularly is get yourself looked at by your doctor. It never hurts to get a professional opinion. Your doctor will be able to tell you if you are suffering from some health issue or if your diet is the reason behind your sharts. You may have to take medications to improve your health condition, or you may have to alter your diet. If your diet is the cause of your sharts, you will need to stop having oily, junk foods and will have to start eating clean and should start including foods that contain a lot of fiber. Fiber is an extremely important part of a diet as it not only helps keep you fuller for longer so that you don’t end up binging on unhealthy snacks but also regulates the passage of digested food through your bowels so that you are more regular. You should also make it a habit to poop at a specific time each day so that your body is prepared for excretion when you sit on the toilet. And remember that there is no rule that says you should poop only once a day. Pooping twice or even thrice a day is completely fine and depends entirely on your body. Don’t try to hold it in because you have a misconception that it is not normal.
