I think when you yourself can't stand to be in the bathroom after having a BM, then it's foul! Also, if the smell lingers forever.  :dazed:

Are you going to choose to continue to worry about this or are you going to chalk this up as health anxiety and move on? It's your choice.

I'm sure it's one of those things where you just know. Without being too gross with this, I'm sure we've all had a BM where right after you just go "woah". When you know you know in my opinion, but who am I! Sorry I couldn't be of actual help, haha.

Well you are certainly overreacting.  If it is this worrisome to you then take a stool sample and get an appointment with your doctor.

You know, I have to admit, this is something I've always wondered about myself.  I every so often get one that smells like death - literally, it smells like something rotting.  I've always assumed it's because of mucus present, because I do have allergies and probably swallow a lot of the stuff.  I've always thought that might be the kind of smell they mean, but I don't actually know. 

See a doctor, though, dude, you're clearly not going to move on from this without a professional.  I doubt you have anything to worry about.  No one's smell *good*.

Do you use artificial sugar? (Equal, etc?)
If so, it could be that.   The doctor told my husband that even though he is diabetic that it is better to use real sugar rather than man made chemicals.   He told him that's what was causing his stomach pains and foul stools - said that real sugar will be absorbed by the body and used whereas the fake stuff sits there and ferments in the gut.

It's not the REAL sugar that gives problems, it's the fake stuff - do you eat the fake stuff?
