Kevin asks:

Sometimes when I am taking a poop, I reach what I call "poop out". Don't ask, just a weird thing. Anyway, this poop out is basically when I defecate until I can't go anymore. Sometimes I do this before a meeting or any other type of event that will not allow me to have instant access to a bathroom.

The couple times that I do this, once I reach "poop out", no more poop is coming out. Even with all my might, no solid poop will come out. Instead, a thick yellowish foamy liquid substance comes out of my anus. I am wondering if this is normal or healthy. Thank you.





Dear Kevin,

Thanks for the question.

"Thick yellow butt foam"--healthy or not?

Methinks NOT, friend. Brown is the color of good poo, and it should never be foamy. Your diet is probably in need of a good overhaul, and you shouldn't be "pooping with all your might". Relax, let it come, and pinch off when you feel mostly empty.

Don't try to get it all out, man. Save something for later.

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?

Maybe your butt foam will make a good chrome cleaner. Try it sometime. If it works, bottle the stuff and sell it on e-bay.

You should probably talk to your parents. Don't know what it is, but it's worth looking in to. Don't be embarrased!

Anonymous girl, please talk to your mom and/or dad about the discharge. Because of additives and food processing practices, and dietary changes in the U.S., girls are beginning their menses at significantly earlier ages than they did 50 years ago.

If the discharge is from your bottom and not your vaginal area, I would venture to say it is not at all related to a "period".

Possibly the funniest medical advice in history.

randomly today after eating a "kids cuisine" and drinking a "rockstar" ((the orange one mixed with juice)) i had this yellow slimy yuck thing come out of my butt. this has NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. i just turned 13 april 11th (last wednesday) and im super freaked. it reminds me of like fish poop or something..and is followed by TINY TINY TINNY peices of poop. i push hard and nothing but a fart. then randomly a fart and butt slime..ah. whats going on? help! am i dying?!?! IM FREAKED THE F*** OUT!!!!

Anonymous Coward's picture

I Have that too, but without eating and drinking the tsrange stuff. I've no idea what it is, but I'm still alive. Anyone else?

Frothingfarter's picture

Been having an unusual amount of gas lately after eating and since I'm at work I have to hold it in until I get to the bathroom. There is no stomach pain, just slight bloating. Once in the bathroom I let loose. The farts are so long and rumbling that if I was in the privacy of my home I'd probably be laughing hysterically. The kicker is that the gas build up shoots small poop out like a cannon. When I am finally empty I'm still farting out foam. What the hell is that?

i have been farting out white foam all day. it doesn't stink and it may be related to drink large amounts of alcohol because I'm in college. has this ever happened before? any suggestions? and i cant poop

Poop jar, get some "milk thistle" and switch to coffee. No more alcohol for a while or ever. You may have some liver damage- but the liver can rejuvenate itself in time if it isn't too late.

Guys, you're all nuts. Sitting around blowing foam out your ass? What the hell? Usually broken glass comes out of mine.

Kelly, if you're pregnant, then I think it's fair to say that your husband got you in the "front door."

As for pregnancy advice, I have nothing helpful for you. Sorry.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I have extremely thick and kinda hard poop, ive tried pooping it out but it hurts and when i tried it seems to reach the door, but be too fat to get through. I need some sort of solution please!

Anonymous Coward's picture

I woke up on sunday morning and puked my guts up five times. The whole time I had these intense, tight feeting pains in the lower part of my stomach. I thought i might be constapated because thats happened alot before, so I took six laxatives/stoolsofteners over the past two days. Today was when my bowels finally started moving and I had diereeah(sp?). And just now I was upstairs and I let a fart out and I felt wetness on my butt. I went to the bathroom to check it out and there was clear goop on the bottom of my pajamas. Anyone haave any idea what this could be? I'm really starting to freak out. Oh and if it helps, i'm a sixteen year old girl

GO TO THE HOSPITAL AND GET CHECKED OUT NOW. IM NO DOCTOR BUT IT MAY BE YOUR APPENDIX.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Ok... so I've been having problems going poop for the last year! Actually it's always been something that hasn't been fun for me but for the last 6 months sometimes blood comes out with the poop or on the toliet paper, and other times it's completely fine and better than ever. It almost feels like theres a little cut on the inside of my anus that won't heal. what could it be? I can't bring myself to go to the doctor... so any advice other than that? If it helps, i'm an 18 year old girl.

Just remember, Anonymous, if your eyes or ears were bleeding, you'd see a doctor. I know it sounds horrifying to have someone look up your butt, and I know because I had to have it done at your age. However, your doctor has seen butts before.

It could be a hemmorrhoid, or a little tear that keeps on getting torn open, or the beginning of an anal fissure.

Keep to a diet rich in fruits and bran, and try to get your guts up to ask mom to take you to the doctor. If not mom, maybe a female family member you trust.

Frothingfarter- I have the EXACT same thing
did you find out what it is from. I have had it now for over 9 weeks!

I pooped out foam to but it came with poop that was moving in the toilet like if it was alive!! it was wiggling...... I know its not normal, but what could be the cause of a wiggly foaming poop

daphne's picture
PoopReport of the Year AwardSite AdminComment Content ModeratorComment Quality Moderatore 6000+ points

That's gnarly. I'm going to suggest you had a lot of air in your bowels, and when you downloaded, the air escaped and caused your poo to look like it had moved.

Or you ate an alien. Either one.

Or, Christopher, your foam was very much like soap froths, which are known to move around as the liquid partitions between the bubbles undergo changes. Next time you have this condition, get in the bathtub and stage a naval battle between equal amounts of soap and shit suds. Guaranteed publishable story.

if poo is struggling to get out your bum &seems too big to get out the hole this is known as 'faecal impaction' you can buy sachets of movicol which may push things along a bit. if you're in extreme pain ring a doc &they can remove the blockage painlessly (dont be embarrassed they see all different bums/willys/vaginas/poops on a daily basis!)lastly,a little trick-wash &lube your finger &slide it in your bum say2 inches just for a couple of secs-this can stimulate your anal muscles to push the poo out

Anonymous Cow's picture

I a1so experienced the same thing as Christopher and POOPed foam and a little wiggling thing on my POOP!!! very small, hope its not a worm or sumthing :/

Anonymous Coward's picture

hey, i have an issue. One day i felt i had to take a really bad crap and when i crapped the poop in the toliet it was infested with little maggot looking things!!! Is this normal? what the hell is going on? This is was the first time it happened.

Kevin, You drink too much.

Anonymous Coward's picture

the 'maggots' your talking about are probably pin worms. it's a fairly common parasite infection, especially among children. it's relatively harmless and more annoying than anything. i think your butt hole should be itchy or something. in my disease class we never really got as far as curing it... sorry. the foamy clear stuff is probably mucus. oh, and the pin worms crawl out of your butt at night. so there. thought i'd try extra hard to gross you out :)

AC, you're right, these partying little night owls do crawl out of your ass at night. I suggest using some small sticks and your shoe laces to set up some snares on your ass. You should be able to catch most of them.

i have been drinking nothing but coffee and smoking for 3 days,i jut farted and got a load of tacky foam in my undies, i think its safe to say this is an empty stomach issue

Nick Prodzenko's picture

Someone has to help me. Im an average 15 year old male but ive been having some strange problems for almost a year now. Its almost like i have no control of my bowels. I find myself shitting in my pants more times than i make it to the toilet. This is highly embarassing, especially in school. Sometimes when i stand up after laying an uncontrollable shit in my pants, the chair is soaking wet, with a top layer of foam. it smells somewhat like vinegar. What is it?? What should i do?? i dont want to get made fun of anymore

Nick! You poor guy! Please talk to your school nurse. Please. I don't know how you feel about talking to your mother and father - if they're cool, go for it. Remember, as a minor in this country, you are entitled to health care; and if you are denied health care, it can be considered neglect. As a teenage boy, you should not be losing control of your bowels. It might be a symptom of a bigger problem. I know there are disorders that center around an absence of messages sent from the colon/anal spincter/rectum to the brain, and you might be suffering from something of that nature.

The smell of vinegar might mean you've got some type of bacteria/virus, too. This is more than enough of a reason to see a doctor/maybe an endocrinologist.

You're going to have to ask for help to get it at your age, being a minor. I know it might be hard, but remember - this is one part of your life, and you have a long, long life left ahead of you. In years to come, this will be done with.

Good luck.

i've read that the foamy poo thing could be malabsorption but i dont know. i usually have this with gas

cryss's picture

Nick i understand what you are going through because i have the same problem.once, it happened to me almost the same thing but fortunately i had just left from school. i went to a doctor and he diagnosed me with IBS but i'm afraid it's more than that. now i'm waiting for further investigations. i'm getting a treatment, i'm feeling a little better[at least i'm able to control my bowels] but some days i still have a foamy poo or diarrhea, my belly hurts, especially when i'm stressed or don't get enough sleep. i have to be careful of my diet, too. contact me if you want to know how the things will develop. I hope you'll be getting better. b'bye

i dont drink alcohol am not pregnet and have not drank any wierd concoctions
but i also felt like i had to go really bad i thought i had diareah but it was only this wierd foam!

Unclebuck's picture

The foam is all related to diet (the Kid cuisine and monster energy drink comment was my favorite) and your large intestine trying to push out waste. It's all normal. If this is accompanied with a bright red blood than it's a minor form of colitis or external injury. If the blood is dark or in the waste then I would see a doctor

pooper man's picture

You either shit a pineapple daiquiri, or a Midori sour. I'm not sure.

My son has had a great deal of gas today, and later he started having frothy stuff coming out. It doesn't smell like anything and is almost colorless...about a month ago, his stools were almost eggshell in color! His stool color has gotten darker, but now this frothy/foam gas. Has anyone had this happen to them? We're going to the doctor next week.
