A Frightened Citizen asks,

Is it possible for a relatively healthy person to vomit up their own feces? This brings up interesting questions -- such as, when does digested food make the change into poop? And just how far does feces have to travel if it can in fact be vomited up?

I am concerned for my welfare, and any preventitive measures that I could take to safeguard against this undoubtedly traumatic phenomena would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could refer me to some specific cases of poop vomiting, I would appreciate that as well.





Poonurse responds:

No, I don't think a healthy person vomits feces. This happens only if you have a bowel obstruction of some sort.

If you, Frightened Citizen, are actually vomiting feces, might I suggest you see a doctor about this? I mean, you really might think about it...

However, if you are just wondering about your "welfare" and looking for "preventative measures" to take, relax. You need to do nothing. Your body takes care of its own exit strategies.

Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

I have done this b-4 I was very sick with a really bad urinary tack infection and could not pass my stool properly and had no other choice but to throw it up.... the doctors told me it was quit normal to do so.....IK IT TASTED HORABLE!!!

I only believe this can be true because the past couple of months , well year I have been constipated to the point of no return and would only find relief when taking all kinds of over the counter and home remedies that would last a day or two. But the past two weeks I have had a stomach virus that I thought would would help thank god but other than feeling like shit I was so backed up it felt like it was being pushed up through my chest and that I had to vomit. My breathe smelled so bad no matter what I did from brushing , flossing, mouth wash. My mouth wash dry and foul, and i drink shit loads of water(excuse me) and I was still dehydrated 200oz. I felt like I had to throw up but the smell was so bad so I kept rubbing my stomach down. After one pepto Im back to not being able to go again for 2 wks other than one pebble. Doctors have no clue whats wrong.

People poop out of their mouth all the time. It's called talking shit and accepted even (especially) in the highest places.

I recently drank Prune juice and then woke up at 4am with major diarrhea and vomiting, worst feeling ever. I think my vomit tasted like feces. Or at least as bad as feces.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I once barfed a bunch of fecal matter after guzzling a ridiculous amount of utility-grade whiskey. The guys I was with were more seasoned whiskey drinkers than I, and they seemed to think it was not that unusual for this to happen when stupidly huge amounts of cheap whiskey were consumed. Please realize that this is a really stupid and dangerous thing to do, but you asked for stories, so I thought I'd share my experience.

cant get the taste out's picture

Friday mourning i vomited bile mixed with diarrhea, after that every time i tasted or smelled it i vomited. god i hope that never happens again in my life. i thought maybe food poisoning, but now i believe slight constipation combined with upset digestive track.

TheFamilyDoctor's picture

My sister told me earlier tonight by phone, that a couple of weeks ago she had to vomit and that it smelled and looked like feces...she described the texture as unlike vomit and said it tasted beyond foul. She was hospitalized 2 days later, but didn't tell the ER docs about the episode because she was embarrassed. She has had multiple episodes of gastroenteritis since about the age of 8. That first time, we lived in the Rockies, far away from even the nearest highway, and I remember that she had to be medivac'd from our valley in the middle of the night. At this point in her life, she has multiple health issues and takes several medications that can inhibit bowel movements. I'm gonna continue to research bowel obstructions (off this site, no offense) and feel that I must call her tomorrow to inform her about Copromesis. Here is a question regarding my own plop-plops: what could cause my feces to smell EXACTLY like cat feces? Every once in a great while this will happen. One time I had a friend to visit, and unfortunately he rang the doorbell just as I was finishing one of these weird-smelling dumps. Even after two flushes and an unhealthy amount of air-freshener spray, my friend walked in, sniffed the air and said "I didn't know you got a cat"......
It's happened so infrequently that I honestly always forget to ask my doctor about it.
Aside of that, I poop every day, sometimes twice. It's a great feeling! But, NOT out the mouth!

I throw up poo! I throw it up in the air and watch it splat on the floor! Sometimes if im lucky, on someones head :P

When my father was dieing of pancreatic cancer, He was vomiting poo. Now I have been going through testing for malabsorption for 6 months and a few weeks ago I had burps that stunk like shit. Doctors are taking their sweet ass time figuring this out! In the mean time I am loosing weight and feeling terrible. I bet if they felt like this it would not take 6 months to diagnose.

Hi,
I got diagnosed with twisted bowel syndrome a short while ago and I find it very difficult to poo sometimes.
I poo around 2-3 times a week and would classify this as my normal routine... But occasionally I don't excrete at all for a week or more even though my eating regime is completely normal (5-a-day and 3 meals a day)
When I do need to poo usually it's too big to come out also and I am scared that it will cause a blockage and reverse the cycle, which results in pooing out of my mouth.
PLEASE HELP ?!
Thanks L x

Rumble Guts's picture

Well, I have a rather horrible story relating to defecation. Certain times, when I eat certain foods, my guts erupt in a loud rumble. It's very embarrassing, and I don't know what to do. I don't think I'm lactose intolerant or anything. It always happens with different foods, not the same. I just wonder what makes my stomach rumble like an earthquake. I have to literally get up and run as fast as I can to the bathroom, or bad things happen. I always bring extra pants with me whenever I can. Does anyone else have the same issue?

Perhaps this is the origin of the term potty mouth.

I'm sorry for the people who honestly have this problem, but for you other posters. Bravo, i haven't laughed like that for months.

You would not think it "hilarious" if you were confronted with this syndrome, or God forbid actually were stricken with it. It is called "Copremesis" and is all too real. My ex husband, Bruce, acquired cancer of large intestine (and lungs), and had surgery to remove the blockage (tumor in the intestine), a little over a month before he died.

Prior to the surgery he was suffering this horrible condition. We had not been "friendly" for many many years, but I made peace with the poor soul before he died, and if copremesis was karmic consequence, then his 'heart' was worse than I even knew.
Bless him... and to anyone who does not believe that this condition is very real, let me say that it is. Be sympathetic, be kind.

Isn't bile a form or component of poo? I know that if you vomit all the contents of your stomach + a certain amount of body water, then the next to come is the bitter and disgusting brown/yellow bile

After ingesting 5 quid of Hydrox Colon Cleanse my 6-metre long strang of excrement shat out mouthward, bound for upper wallcase, due to anal blockage. Case files will prove me correct in my mission to purge the last nugget.

I've had a bad case of the flu for the past week, at the same time as being really constipated, and I'm pretty sure I just puked up a gallon of diarrhea. Literally -- I've been using an old milk jug as a puke bucket, and this morning I woke up, rolled onto my side, and filled the jug up to the brim with pure puke-poo. It is completely brown and black, with the consistency of gravy, and it tasted so bad in my mouth that it triggered an involuntary reflex that kept going for a good ten or fifteen minutes. The jug is still sitting besides my toilet because I am too scared to go back and pour it out. I just ate a bunch of corn yesterday and there are corn chunks laced through the jug like little yellow pieces of cheese.

I have been wondering if one could vomit poop for a VERY long time!! Thanks for answering my inquiry, but I am very sorry for your... uh.... crappy condition. Speaking of poop... I feel some odd bowel movement coming....

I once thought I had to poot, but instead it was liquid. I hadn't ate all day and it was a purple color. What was that all about? I ate some bread after then I was fine...

It's spelled defecation.

You know, Chief, one of the first things I noticed when I started reading PoopReport was the enforcement of proper writing skills. I am proud and pleased (and oh, so highly amused) to be part of a community where articulation and feces share the same space and are treated with equal importance (and mocked when appropriate). And to think I actually almost believed the doctors a few times when they questioned MY soundness of mind.....
It is good to know I actually have my priorities straight.

Every poop is not to be told to every body.

AC, we at poopreport help each other. You see, most people find poopreport while they are searching to solve a poop problem. Many poopreporters have been helped even if it just a suggestion to see a doctor. If I didn't laugh about my poo problems, I would be crying. So shut the hell up, AC. And go back to language class and learn how to write properly.

I once took care of an elderly woman who had a lower bowel obstruction. She was vomiting diarrhea; fecal odor, brown, no discernible traces of undigested food. She kept saying "I'm sorry!" I felt so damn bad for her. I've heard of eat shit and die, but eat shit and live is far, far worse.

I have never pooped out of my mouth but i would like to... how do i start?

Last night after going to bed, I began having bad stomach pains and finally felt like I needed to vomit. I always hold my nose when I vomit because I don't like the vomit to come out of my nose too. I swear my vomit looked like brown diarreah! It tasted horrible and the sight of it made me vomit even more. I don't know what it smelled like because I was pinching my nose shut the entire time...and I don't want to know. I took some medication for nausea and so I didn't vomit anymore. I will wait and see if it happens again.
