i suffer from IBS and currently under medication. The biggest issue i'm facing right now, is flatulence. The smell disgusts me and the sound has made me embarrassed many times. (At home as well as work). It has come to a point, where I have completely forgotten the meaning of self.


I really really need advice!!! So far i have used Shreddies which is an underwear that claims to stop/ reduce smell of flatulence. but let me tell you!! this is not the best option!!!


I am seeking effective solutions for this problem and hoping to rebuild the lost self confidence. Please feel free to share your thoughts and experiences.

Have you ever been tested for sibo (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth)? A symptom of that is horrid flatulence. Antibiotics can help with it.. it helped me alot.
