When there’s excess gas in your body, your butt is one of the ways gas can be expelled from the digestive system. This is known as farting.

What causes farting?

Farting is a natural process, so don’t feel weird if you fart alot. A normal person farts about five to 23 times per day.

Farting and belching are caused by gas buildup during digestion and swallowing air with food. Gas accumulate in your digestive tract if you smoke, use a straw, or eat hard-to-digest foods. It can also triggered by stress, constipation, or digestive system issues.

What happens when you hold in a fart?

Holding in a fart can cause immediate pain, discomfort, bloating, indigestion and heartburn. As pressure builds, stress levels increase. In the 1970s, experts discovered a link between holding in farts and diverticulitis, inflammation or swelling of pouches along the digestive tract. Unabsorbed gas is absorbed by the bloodstream and exhaled by the lungs.

However, if you are wondering why your stomach is so big, it could be from holding in your fart, as it causes a distended abdomen, which is when your stomach is measurably swollen beyond its normal size.

Can holding in a fart cause death?

Although it can be extremely painful and uncomfortable, holding in a fart might cause your death.
