Let us be honest. Poop never smells great. But if you have noticed lately that your poop smells even pungent than ever, it could be a sign that something is not right in your digestive system. Delhi-based gastroenterologist Dr Naresh Gulati tells you what could lead to a smelly poop.
The smell of your poop depends on two factors-- the bacteria in the intestinal tract and the food you eat.
However, if the consistency of your bowel movements has changed and the smell hasn t gone away it is best that you consult a doctor. Smelly poop could also be a symptom of other issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
