What it Means to Have a 'Ghost Poop,' According to a Doctor

For when your poop feels paranormal.

Headshot of Taylyn Washington-Harmon

Dr. Islam gives us three definitions of the elusive ghost poop: 1) the urge to poop that ends up only being gas, 2) a poop so smooth that it went down the drain before you could see it, and lastly 3) a visible poop in the toilet, but zero poop marks on your toilet paper after wiping.

As far as the first type of ghost poop, "This is caused by having too much air in the colon and in the rectum as well," he says. "It innervates or activates the nerves inside your colon [and rectum] and gives you that urge to have a bowel habit." The culprit? Eating gassy foods, being constipated, or even swallowing too much air.

The main way to prevent this ghastly gas is simply to avoid eating foods that give you lots of gas, avoid swallowing too much air (typically by drinking straws), and keeping your bowel movements regular, he suggests.

The second ghost poop isn't one to worry about, Dr. Islam says. It should actually be celebrated for being such an amazing bowel movement.

The third type of ghost poop might feel bizarre, but it's also nothing to fear, according to Dr. Islam. "It's like a ghost that leaves no trace," he says. This is a sign you had a poop so small or so smooth that simply didn't leave a mark—zero cause for alarm.

Dr. Islam's tips for your best poop yet, with or without ghost poops? Eat more probiotic and magnesium foods like kimchi and whole grains , spend less time on the toilet, and consider in a bidet and Squatty Potty for cleaner, more efficient bowel movements.

I Pooped But there Was Nothing in the Toilet: What is the Problem?

The phenomenon of a “ghost poop” often perplexes many people. If you pooped and nothing appears in the toilet bowl, you’ll want to learn what this mysterious poop says about your overall health and toilet habits. Generally speaking, having a ghost poop means you’re experiencing the relief of a bowel movement without actually seeing any evidence of it inside the toilet bowl or on the toilet paper when you wipe off your butt. There’s a heated debate as to what exactly causes a ghost poop. Rather than thinking too hard about it, we’ve done our research and are ready to explain this mysterious phenomenon to you.

Causes of Ghost Poops

According to health professionals, elusive ghost poop may be a result of three things:

  • Your urge to poop ends up only being gas or farts
  • The poop was so smooth that it slid down the drain before you could flush the toilet
  • The poop left zero marks on the toilet paper after wiping your butt

1. Pooping Only Gas (Empty Farts)

Some people experience ghost poops when they have too much air in their colon and rectum. It causes nerves to be activated inside your colon and rectum, and as a result, you have that urge to go to the bathroom. You might mistakenly think that your poop is actually a ghost poop because it smells really bad. On the contrary, you could be having lots of gas from eating gassy food or from drinking too much alcohol.

Stay away from foods that give you a lot of gas, and avoid gulping too much air (mostly by drinking a lot of water) to keep your bowel movements consistent. If you feel like you’re about to have a big bowel movement but can only manage to put out a few farts on the toilet, that’s the same as ghost poop. 

Too much air in your intestines and your rectum can cause you to feel desperate to poop. Even if you don’t actually poop, you may feel relieved just by releasing all that tension in your gut. It’s normal to mistake a poopy feeling for a painful sensation when you have a poor bowel movement. 

2. Poop That Doesn’t Leave Remnants On Your Butt

There is no need to worry about this kind of ghost poo because this is normal. You should be extremely grateful for having such a healthy bowel movement when this happens. Sometimes, you have poop that goes out completely clean and leaves no residue behind. This is more pleasant than those embarrassing and painful poops where you constantly have to wash your hands to get rid of a stubborn smell. 

There are two possible explanations for poop that gets away without leaving a mess. First, you had really good, healthy bowel movements. If you have an easy bowel movement and nothing remains in your bottom afterward, that may be because you didn’t have enough fiber in your diet. 

Another explanation for having a ghost poop is that you had a very small bowel movement. Sometimes very small bowel movements don’t leave any mess, and it’s not a big deal. In fact, they’re one of the most prized types of poo. This insane, mythical, and highly sought-after ghost poop is truly amazing.

If you want easier, smooth poos, consider eating foods rich in prebiotic fibers, like asparagus, bananas, and oats.

3. Poop Disappears Down the Drain

This type of ghost poop is very weird, but it’s normal. It’s like a ghost that disappears and never leaves a mark. This is a sign that your poop was so small or smooth that it simply didn’t leave behind any mark. So, this is zero cause for alarm.

Poops can come in various sizes and shapes and can even smell strange when you push them out. Maybe the size and shape of your poop are pretty consistent, so you don’t expect much from your stool. Some people think a good poop session is like receiving a surprise gift: opening a big box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get.

In most cases, your poop will either sink to the bottom of your toilet bowl or float on top of the toilet water . It is possible for poop to easily slide down the drain without leaving a trail. You may feel it, but you may not be able to see it. It’s like a diver going straight to the bottom of a pool and not splashing any water . If your poop is long and smooth, you have a very healthy gut.

Wrapping Up

Even if you pooped and there was nothing in the toilet , it’s still essential to wipe down your butt and flush your toilet. A quick wipe down the toilet can help you avoid messing in the bathroom; it also stops germs from growing in your bathroom. Don’t punish yourself with dirty paper, and make sure that you clean out your hands after you go to the toilet. Use  Booty Wipes  to keep things fresh. They contain soothing aloe and vitamin E to help you relax and prevent you from having a sassy time.

What is ‘ghost poop’ — and why is it exploding on tiktok.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Now you see it — now you don’t.

Something is brewing on TikTok — and it could be the result of your morning cup of coffee.

“A ‘ghost poop’ is a term used to describe when one’s stool sinks to the bottom of the toilet and seemingly vanishes without a trace,” gut health expert and registered dietician Julie Balsamo told The Post in an email on Tuesday.

In other words, if you’ve ever gone to the bathroom and then looked into the toilet, only to see your feces disappear, it means that you’ve experienced the elusive “ghost poop” — and the same thing goes if you’ve wiped and there’s nothing on the toilet paper.

As the subject of a hashtag with more than 15 million views on the social media platform , ghost poop is something that should be celebrated, as it’s the result of a healthy bowel movement — most of the time, at least.

One Canadian-based naturopathic doctor, Dr. Janine Bowring, even claimed in a video with more than 7.3 million views this week that if you experience this kind of bowel movement, it could mean that you’re one of the “healthiest people on the planet.”

@j9naturally What Does THIS Poop Mean? 💩 Dr. Janine provides valuable insight into the significance of the ghost poop. This type of poop, where you feel like you’ve passed something but nothing is visible in the toilet or when wiping, may suggest that you are one of the healthiest individuals out there. It is a sign that your body is receiving adequate amounts of fiber and fatty acids while maintaining proper circadian rhythms aligned with nature. Understanding the nuances of your bodily functions can be an important indicator of overall health and well-being. #poop #guthealth #circadianrhythms #pooptok #wellness ♬ original sound – doctorjanine Bowring, ND

Dr. Bowring revealed that a "ghost poop" — a bowel movement that disappears into the toilet,  is the sign of a healthy gut.

Bowring alleged that your poop has gone into the abyss of the toilet bowl due to the result of a healthy diet and sleep cycle.

“It’s because you’ve got that fiber, you’ve got enough of those essential fatty acids, your circadian rhythms are in tune with nature with the light and dark cycle of the day, and you’ve got that ghost poop,” she explained in the clip.

And, according to California-based registered dietician nutritionist Amanda Sauceda , it can also mean that your body is properly hydrated.

“If you’re wiping and there’s no residue on the paper, that can mean your diet has a good amount of fiber in it and you’re adequately hydrated,” Sauceda explained in an email to The Post on Tuesday.

Sauceda also added that you shouldn’t stress if you’re not having a ghost poop every day, as diets fluctuate — which means that our stools will, too.

Another TikToker named Steven Wright , founder of the supplement company the Healthy Gut , seconded Sauceda’s thoughts in a May 2022 video, revealing that these kinds of bowel movements are “ideal” — but you shouldn’t expect to have them all the time.

The poop should be long and snakelike, according to another TikToker.

“When I say ideal, it’s because it’s what we’re shooting for on a regular basis, but it’s probably not going to happen every day,” he said in the clip, which has since amassed more than 50,000 views.

Wright also claimed that a “ghost poop” is considered a “four” on the Bristol Stool Chart — a research tool that “classifies feces” into seven different categories in order to tell you about the health of your bowel movements, according to the Cleveland Clinic .

A “four” on the BSC indicates a thin and “snakelike” poop that is also smooth and soft in texture.

Sauceda advised that “hard, pellet-like poop” and poop with “a lot of cracks on the surface” are both not “healthy” — ranking as a 1 or a 3 on the BSC.

To achieve a smooth and “snakelike” ghost poop, people should try to eat more plants and consume foods that have fiber in them.

Even more crucial is making sure that you’re staying hydrated, as fiber has a harder time moving through the gut without water.

The Bristol Stool Chart can also be a helpful tool in learning about your poop.

“Plants are your best fiber foods, and fiber helps you poop easier and keeps you pooping on the regular,” Sauceda told The Post. “Some stand-out fiber foods are avocado, berries, beans and whole grains.”

However, in some cases, the ghost poop could also be a sign of malabsorption, according to Balsamo.

“While this can be indicative of healthy digestion, it should not be solely relied upon as a definitive measure of one’s digestive health,” Balsamo explained.

“On one hand, floating stool may suggest the presence of steatorrhea (excess fat in the stool) or malabsorption. However, it can also be attributed to a high fiber diet, which can lead to increased gas production.”

If you don’t find yourself having many — or any — ghost poops, you shouldn’t be alarmed, either.

In fact, having a ghost poop every day isn’t always ideal, Sauceda noted, as you are unable to see the changes in your feces if it just disappears all the time.

A "ghost poop" can be described as a poop that seemingly "disappears."

“It isn’t ideal 100% of the time because you can’t observe any changes in your poop,” she wrote. “If the poop disappears in the toilet bowel right after you go, then you won’t be able to see if there are color or consistency changes.”

And having a floating stool does not necessarily mean that you have some kind of underlying health condition, according to Balsamo.

“It is crucial to assess the overall context and consider other factors before drawing conclusions,” Balsamo advised.

She described that it’s important to seek the advice of a medical expert if you have a “specific concern” regarding what’s been left in the toilet after you go to the bathroom, or if you’ve had changes to your digestive health.

Sauceda also pointed out that if you’re not going to the bathroom very often, that should be another sign to talk to your doctor.

“Pooping is like taking out the trash and you want to be doing it often,” she told The Post. “If you’re going more than three days without pooping, that could be a sign to talk with your doctor.”

No Poop on Toilet Paper After Wiping?

No Poop on Toilet Paper After Wiping?

No poop on toilet paper after wiping? If you are wondering what the problem is, it’s called ghost poop! You might be having an underlying condition that causes you to constantly use half of the tissue paper roll after you’ve pooped but still can’t see anything on the paper. If this happens, contact your doctor to help rule out any medical issue.

Remember that wiping too hard can cause you to feel very itchy, irritated, and uncomfortable after you finish using the bathroom. When you have a bowel movement, it should take 2 -3  swipes of toilet paper to dry the perineal area .

So, if you experience some other unusual symptoms, read through this article to see what could be the cause, and visit your doctor if the symptoms continue.

What Are Ghost Poops?

Watch this short video to understand what a ghost poop is and why it happens!

3 Definitions of Evasive Ghost Poop

  • I. The feeling to poop those only results in gas – It is caused by too much air in your intestines and rectum. It activates the nervous system and causes you to crave to go to the washroom to poop. The culprit? Overeating gassy foods are hence becoming constipated.
  • II. A poop that is so smooth that it goes down the drain before you realize it!
  • III. You’ve pooped in your toilet bowl , but no poop marks on the tissue paper after wiping your butt.

The Correct Way to Wipe Your Bum

When you’ve finished comfortably doing your business, always wipe from the front to the back of your body. Avoid having skin-to-skin contact with the poop. It is effortless to reach behind your butt and between the legs, and use plenty of folded or crumpled toilet paper to wipe. Always wipe backward, starting from the area between the genitalia and your bum.

Use as much tissues as needed to clean the bum. Never remove any lint or dirt from the skin around your perennial area. It can cause a micro-cut in the skin, allowing bacteria to enter your body through these tinny tears.

You can stretch and reach between your feet if you can’t reach behind your back for any reason, such as arthritis, weight, or an injury. However, remember that you need to wipe from front to back, not from the back to the front. This is especially vital for women who have a cyst. It is essential to wipe the area from front to back because it prevents fluid from entering the private area, where urine typically exits the body. If any poop touches your skin , immediately flush it with cool water and soap.

What Are the Consequences of Poor Wiping? Have More Complications?

Wiping up your butt after you’re done your business on the toilet bowl is important in achieving a feeling of cleanliness. Not wiping out all the poop after having a bowel movement can cause the risk of developing certain health conditions:

 In women, you increase your chances to:

  • Labial irritation

In men, you’re likely to face issues such as:

  • General discomfort

Reasons Why You Might Be Wiping Many Times After a Bowel Movement

A few things can cause you to have difficulty wiping your butt or make it difficult to feel totally clean after you’re done with the business. Note that everyone sometimes has to wipe their bum a little more time than usual. But when you suddenly need to wipe using a lot of paper, and there’s still no poop on the paper, it may be that one of the following health conditions is causing it.

1. Bowel Leakage

Leakage in your stool is sometimes called fecal incontinence . It occurs when you have a hard time holding your urge to poop in a normal way. When you pass gas, you may leak stool. Or, you may find that you leak stool all through the day.

2. Hemorrhoids

The swollen veins outside or inside the perennial area that cause bleeding, itchiness, or pain are what is known as Hemorrhoids . Hemorrhoids are most common in women.

Research reports that 1 out of 20 grown-ups in the U.S and that approximately half of the population who are 50 years and older may have hemorrhoids. Some people struggle to completely clean since their stools can get stuck to their swollen veins.

3. Anorectal Abscess

An anorectal abscess is a painful, pus-filled sac that drains from the inside of the bowel (e.g., the interior of a balloon) to cause blood, pus, or bowel distention. It may be pus, stool, or blood draining from the abscess. Lack of treatment for anorectal abscess can lead to a fistula .

Is a no-wipe poop healthy?

For females, not wiping stool correctly can increase the risks of Urinary Tract Infections, Vaginitis, and Irritation. On the other hand, men can experience itchiness and genital discomfort.

What are the common symptoms of bowel problems?

The signs include vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal and gas bloating, and abdominal discomfort.

How can you have bowel movements cleanly?

It’s simple! You should drink enough water, eat fiber-rich foods, vegetables, grains, nuts, and fruits, and adapt the ideal bathroom sitting posture when you have bowel movements.

Bottom Line

If there is no poop on your toilet paper after wiping your bum, it’s easy to presume that your bowel is performing its job correctly and is drying the poop out before it’s excreted; thus, there is no waste in cleaning your bum. Unfortunately, if a person has constipation and the waste is not passed out as needed, this can cause damage to the bowel, resulting in bleeding and other health complications. It would be best to see your doctor to rule out any serious issue.

Ever Had A 'Ghost Poop'? This Doctor Has News For You

ghost wipe poop

A phantom faeces. An elusive excretion. Whatever you want to call it, ghost poops – bowel movements that either don’t leave a trace on the toilet paper or aren’t visible in the toilet bowl at all – can be a baffling experience.

Recently, TikTok creator Janine Bowring shared her insights into the confounding experience. “If you have this type of poop, you may just be the healthiest person on the planet,” the TV personality and naturopathic doctor began her video .

“It is the ghost poop – the kind of poop where you look in the toilet, you’re like, ‘I’m sure I pooped,’ but it’s gone,” she said.

Gastroenterologist and Men’s Health columnist Dr Sameer Islam agrees, saying he would “celebrate” if he had this type of bowel movement.

So, here’s why ghost poops can spell such good news for your gut – and when it might be cause for consideration.

Let us turn to our good friend, the Bristol stool chart

You probably already know that different poos look and feel different. A quick peek at the Bristol stool chart shows that smooth, soft, sausage-like bowel movements are a positive sign your diet and gut are working as a great team.

These are the types of faeces most likely to cause the ghost poop phenomenon, Bowring says in her video . In this instance, the poo sinks to the bottom of the toilet so you can’t actually see it.

Whether you notice an invisible excretion or face a pristine sheet of toilet paper after wiping, Bowring claims “it’s because you’ve got that fibre, you’ve got enough of those essential fatty acids, [and] your circadian rhythms are in tune with nature.”

Dr Islam adds that a poop you can’t spot in the toilet bowl could just mean you’ve had a “magical” healthy defecation session, or that the bowel movement could be smaller than usual. “Not a big deal,” he says.

@j9naturally What Does THIS Poop Mean? 💩 Dr. Janine provides valuable insight into the significance of the ghost poop. This type of poop, where you feel like you've passed something but nothing is visible in the toilet or when wiping, may suggest that you are one of the healthiest individuals out there.

Understanding the nuances of your bodily functions can be an important indicator of overall health and well-being. #poop #guthealth #circadianrhythms #pooptok #wellness ♬ original sound - doctorjanine Bowring, ND

Here’s when you might want to rethink your diet

There’s a third type of ghost poop, though – one which feels like a full-on bowel movement, but which is actually just gas. This can be a cause for concern, Dr Islam shared in a YouTube video .

This happens when you’ve got too much air in your gut, which “innervates or activates the nerves inside your colon [and rectum] and gives you that urge to have a bowel habit,” the doctor shared.

The NHS says that this “can be caused when you swallow air or eat foods that are difficult to digest.” Culprits include fatty foods, smoking, overeating and drinking through straws.

Sometimes, too much gas can be a sign of a health condition. But if your gassier days clearly stem from swallowing too much air or going heavy on the snacks, there might be less of a cause for concern.

And if your ghost poops take the form of either of the other two types, then congrats – your guts are likely in great nick.

Dealing with Ghost Poop: Understanding Phantom Rectum and Tenesmus

Ghost poop is a term commonly used to describe a bowel movement that leaves no trace behind. It is often referred to as a “clean break” because it requires litle to no wiping after the act is complete. This phenomenon is not uncommon and can be attributed to a variety of factors.

One of the most common reasons for a ghost poop is a high-fiber diet. Fiber is an essential component of a healthy diet and can be found in a variety of foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. When consumed, fiber adds bulk to your stool, which makes it easier to pass. Additionally, fiber helps to regulate bowel movements, which can prevent constipation and promote healthy digestion.

Another reason for a ghost poop is efficient digestion. When your body efficiently digests food, there is less waste left over to pass through your system. This can result in a bowel movement that is quick and easy, leaving no trace behind.

However, there are also medical conditions that can cause ghost poop. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and celiac disease are all conditions that can lead to changes in bowel movements, including ghost poops. If you are experiencing frequent ghost poops, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

While ghost poop may seem like a minor inconvenience, it can actually be a sign of good digestive health. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and stay hydrated to promote regular, healthy bowel movements. If you are experiencing any changes in your bowel movements or have concerns about your digestive health, talk to your healthcare provider for guidance and support.

What Is A Phantom Poo?

A phantom poo, or phantom rectum, is a condition that can occur after undergoing surgery to remove the large bowel and have the rectum sewn shut. It is characterized by a sensation of needing to defecate, even thouh there is no physical rectum present to facilitate bowel movements. This can be a debilitating condition that affects the quality of life of those who experience it. While it may settle down within a year for some people, others may experience it on a regular basis. It is important to speak with a healthcare professional if you are experiencing this condition to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Why Do I Poop But Nothing Comes Out?

There could be severl reasons why you may feel the urge to poop but nothing comes out. One of the common causes is constipation. It occurs when the stool moves too slowly through the digestive tract, causing it to become hard and dry. As a result, it becomes difficult to pass through the rectum and may lead to a feeling of incomplete bowel movement.

Another possible reason could be rectal prolapse, where the rectum protrudes out of the anus. This can make it difficult to pass stool, leading to a feeling of incomplete bowel movement.

Furthermore, certain medical conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or intestinal obstruction can also cause the sensation of incomplete bowel movement.

In some cases, the urge to poop but nothing coming out could also be due to psychological factors such as anxiety or stress.

If you experience this problem frequently, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional to identify the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.

What Is Ghost Wiping?

Ghost wiping is a type of wiping material that is specifically designed for use in the laboratory. It is a sturdy wiping material that is moistened with DI water, which helps it hold togeher even on the roughest wiping surfaces. The unique feature of ghost wiping is that it readily and completely dissolves during the digestion process, which provides more complete dispersion of analytes and more uniform recoveries. This makes it an ideal choice for use in analytical chemistry, where accuracy and precision are of utmost importance. Ghost wiping is also very easy to use and can help ensure that your lab results are as accurate as possible.

Ghost poop, also known as phantom rectum, can be a challenging experience for those who have undergone large bowel removal surgery. The frequent urge to go to the bathroom without bing able to can be frustrating and impact daily life. However, solutions such as the Ghost Wipe offer a sturdy and effective wiping material that can provide relief and comfort during these episodes. It is essential to seek medical advice and treatment to manage the underlying cause of tenesmus and phantom rectum. With proper care and management, individuals can improve their quality of life and reduce the impact of these symptoms on their daily routine.

Truth behind the ‘ghost poo’ and why it actually happens

Ghost poo

Every day is a school day

Yeah, this is a real topic people are genuinely discussing.

Going to the toilet is a very simple task, but naming how we go to the toilet is another story.

From the traditional number one and number two to all sorts of innuendos like dropping the kids off at the pool, whatever you think is best, I hope it makes you very happy.

Some of us have even that had bizarre event when we have done our business only to find no remain on our toilet roll. Ladies and gentlemen, the term for this is a ghost poo.

Doctor and TikToker Janine Bowring has revealed the method behind the madness and has revealed on the app that not only are you saving toilet paper, but you are also in good health.

In the video, which features a pile of fake poos (stay with me), Bowring says: “If you have this type of poop, you might just be the healthiest person on the planet.

“It is the ghost poop. The poop where you look in the toilet, you’re like ‘I’m sure I pooped, but it’s gone’… you even wipe and you’re like ‘I thought I pooped, I don’t see anything.”

The doctor went on to explain the reasons behind why this happens with Bowring citing a sufficient amount of fibre in your diet as a reason behind it.

“It’s because you’ve got that fibre, you’ve got enough of those essential fatty acids, your circadian rhythms are in tune with nature, with the light and dark cycle of the day, and you’ve got that ghost poop,” she added.

NHS GP Dr Philippa Kaye supported Bowring’s claims, confirming that a clean break is a good sign of health.

As per The Sun, she explained: “Stool which is easily passed without straining yet isn’t too loose can be a healthy stool as it is not constipation or diarrhoea.

“A normal bowel habit can range from several times a day to twice a week. The key is to know what is normal for you and to see a doctor if this changes.”

All About Ghost Wipes

How much are you wiping after you go #2? If the answe is zero, you have experiened a Ghost Wipe. Good for you! The number of times you wipe is related to your bowel health. Are you looking for no wipes after you go #2? Read on friends.

What Is A Ghost Wipe?

Via  media.giphy.com

If you are getting enough fiber, you might be lucky enough to experience the Ghost Wipe. What is the Ghost Wipe? We’re glad you asked. Unlike being ghosted, experiencing a Ghost Wipe is a great thing. A  Ghost Wipe  is a phenomenon that when you wipe your butt after pooping, there is nothing on the toilet paper. Spooky? Not so much, but delightful.

What If Your Wipes Aren't Ghost Wipes?

Contrary to what those Charmin commercials want you to think, how many times you wipe has less to do with your toilet paper and more to do with your poop!  There are plenty of different causes of too much wiping, including:

  • Lack of fiber 
  • Too much sugar 
  • A food allergy or intolerance 
  • Overabundance of laxatives 
  • Emotional states, like stress or anxiety 
  • Irritable bowel syndrome 
  • Gastroenteritis 
  • Celiac disease 
  • Malabsorption 

A long list but one of the easiest fixes that you can start today is at the top: more fiber. The number of times you need to wipe is directly related to how much fiber you’re getting. If you’re like most people, you aren’t getting nearly enough of our favorite f-word: fiber. 

Luckily, more and more people are catching on to the fact that 95% of Americans aren’t getting enough fiber in their daily diets. This is a bummer because fiber is fabulous and has a ton of amazing benefits. Justice for fiber!

Eyes on the Prize: How to Ghost Wipe

The key to bulking up your stool (and preventing endless wiping) is fiber. If you want to prevent the never-ending wipe, you need more fiber in your diet. We have several ways to fix this issue:  

Eat More Fiber (Obviously) 

Simple enough, right? While getting enough fiber through your diet is ideal, it’s extremely difficult for most of us to eat enough in a day that packs enough fiber punch. That’s where an all-natural delicious fiber supplement like Bonny enters the picture. 

Fiber basically acts like a broom that goes through your digestive tract and scrubs it clean, then deposits everything neatly outside your body in a perfectly-packed log of poop—resulting in a  nearly wipe-free bathroom trip . No more messy situations or using up an entire roll of toilet paper. (Just don’t forget to wash your hands!) 

Drink More Water 

Don’t forget to add some more water to your routine too! Water is another easy and effective way to increase the health of your digestive system and help you ease those fiber-packed poops right out of your body. Water and fiber are the perfect combo to get your system working the way it should. 

Exercise More

Moving around enough can also help you evacuate your digestive system more easily and ease up on the wiping. It helps all the fiber and water move through your body and make it easier to go to the bathroom. So get moving. You don’t necessarily have to sign up for that grueling spin class (but if you do see you on the leaderboard)! Try going on more walks or doing another type of exercise you really enjoy.

Ghost Poop: Everything You Need to Know About It

Have you ever been “ghosted” by your poop? If so, you are probably wondering, what is a "ghost poop" and what does it even mean if you have one?

The scholars at Urban Dictionary defined ghost poops as “The single most satisfying bowel movement that man is capable of.”  Generally speaking, a ghost poop means you experience the relief of a bowel movement without seeing any evidence of it, whether inside the toilet bowl or when you wipe your butt.

However, There’s a heated debate online as to what exactly constitutes a ghost poop. In this post, we will explain everything you need to know about ghost poop and debunk some of the myths surrounding it.

What is Ghost Poop?

To provide a definitive explanation of the ever elusive ghost poop, we borrowed information from Dr. Sameer Islam, who is a gastroenterologist and a columnist for Men’s Health .

He did a great job of defining what ghost poop is. Here are the three definitions of what a ghost poop is:

  • The urge to poop that ends up only being gas.
  • A poop so smooth that it went down the drain before you could see it.
  • A visible poop in the toilet, but zero poop marks on your toilet paper after wiping.

While the first type of ghost poop is not a good sign, the second and third type of ghost poop are nothing to worry about. Let’s break down and dissect each type of ghost poop, including what causes each one.

1. Ghost Poop #1: Gas Only

ghost wipe poop

Feeling the urge to poop but nothing comes out is not a good sign.

The first type of ghost poop is when you feel the massive urge to do number two so bad, but nothing comes out instead of farts. It may feel like you need to take a big dump but once you sit down on the toilet, nothing comes out. That’s basically it.

The first type of ghost poop (gas only) happens because there is too much air in the colon and rectum. That air inside the colon and rectum gives you the urge to poop.

Not only does the air take up space, but it also innervates or activates the nerves inside the colon and rectum, giving you the urge to have a bowel movement.

This type of ghost poop is the most common and is caused by eating too many foods that have a lot of gas, being constipated, or even swallowing air that goes all the way to the bottom. 

The best way to prevent this ghastly gas is to avoid eating gassy foods that cause a lot of air. Also, do not do aerophagia (swallowing air), typically by drinking straws, and lastly, keep your bowel movements regular.

2. Ghost Poop #2: Cannot See It

ghost wipe poop

If the poop is not visible, it means you had a great bowel movement.

The second type of ghost poop is when you cannot see the poop itself. Even if you feel the poop coming out, you see nothing in the toilet. Literally, nothing is there!

There is a very simple explanation for this type of magical poop. You may have had a long, smooth poop that created little to no splash, and it went straight into the drain.

If this is the case, you should celebrate because you just had a very good bowel movement. In fact, you should aim to have this type of ghost poop more often.

3. Ghost Poop #3: Clean Toilet Paper

ghost wipe poop

Leaving no residue on the toilet paper is also a good sign!

The third type of ghost poop is when you go to the toilet, something comes out and you can see it in the toilet, but the toilet paper is perfectly clean. There is literally nothing in the toilet paper.

It is like a ghost that leaves no trace.

There are two main reasons why this type of ghost poop can happen.

The first reason is that you may have had a really good poop. Sure, it may feel bizarre, but it is absolutely nothing to worry about. Not every single bowel movement needs to leave a residue.

Secondly, it could be that you just have had a very small bowel movement. Sometimes small bowel movements do not leave any trace behind and they go down quickly. This type of ghost poop is not a big deal.

Is Ghost Poop Bad?

While the second and third type of ghost poop (smooth and no residue) is a sign of good bowel movement, the first type of ghost poop (gas only) is not good for you. It means that there is too much air in your stomach or you are constipated.

Sometimes, you can't always take the time or find a place to make a go to the toilet when the urge arises. This causes your fecal matter to linger too long and loses moisture, getting hard and pellet-like. Then, when you feel like you have to go and you finally make it to the bathroom, there's nothing there.

This type of ghost poop (gas only) is not good for you, especially your digestion and the delicate lining of your rectum. When those hard, little pellets finally do come out, they can rough up the tissue, causing fissures.

If this continues on a consistent basis, you may develop chronic bowel troubles that may be linked to immune system problems, weight gain and hemorrhoids.

Simple Tips For Better Bowel Movement

ghost wipe poop

Eating prebiotics, like kimchi, helps!

Contrary to popular belief, getting some of the best poops of your life is easier than you can imagine. Here are some of the simplest tips for you to try in order to have better bowel movement consistently:

  • Eat more prebiotic food and fiber - Prebiotics are fibers that are not digestible by your body but can help good bacteria grow in your gut. Since your body doesn't digest these plant fibers, they travel to your lower digestive tract to be a food source for the healthy bacteria in your gut. Some of the easiest to find prebiotics are garlic, banana, barley, oats, and apples.
  • Establish a good bowel habit - The simplest thing you can do to establish a good bowel habit is to not sit on the toilet for too long. Spend as little time as you can, do your business, and get out. Maintaining a routine also helps.
  • Add a bidet to your bowel regimen - Yes, bidets have been around for a long time. In fact, most people in Europe have started using bidets. Incorporating a bidet in your bowel habit will keep you clean and leave you feeling good.
  • Add magnesium to your diet - Whether it is over-the-counter magnesium or foods containing magnesium, it helps to increase the amount of water in the intestines and stimulates bowel motion.
  • Invest in a Squatty Potty - This simple, yet effective item works wonders by keeping your legs elevated and lets you have a better angle to have a bowel movement. You can buy the original Squatty Potty .

However, we also understand that it isn't always possible.

Bottom Line

Now you know what ghost poop is, including simple tips to maintain a healthy bowel movement.

You should celebrate if your poop made a graceful exit out of your bottom because not all ghost poops are bad. Remember, when you gotta go, you gotta go!

New York Post

What is ‘ghost poop’ — and why is it exploding on TikTok?

Now you see it — now you don’t.

Something is brewing on TikTok — and it could be the result of your morning cup of coffee.

“A ‘ghost poop’ is a term used to describe when one’s stool sinks to the bottom of the toilet and seemingly vanishes without a trace,” gut health expert and registered dietician Julie Balsamo told The Post in an email on Tuesday.

In other words, if you’ve ever gone to the bathroom and then looked into the toilet, only to see your feces disappear, it means that you’ve experienced the elusive “ghost poop” — and the same thing goes if you’ve wiped and there’s nothing on the toilet paper.

As the subject of a hashtag with more than 15 million views on the social media platform , ghost poop is something that should be celebrated, as it’s the result of a healthy bowel movement — most of the time, at least.

One Canadian-based naturopathic doctor, Dr. Janine Bowring, even claimed in a video with more than 7.3 million views this week that if you experience this kind of bowel movement, it could mean that you’re one of the “healthiest people on the planet.”

What Does THIS Poop Mean? 💩 Dr. Janine provides valuable insight into the significance of the ghost poop. This type of poop, where you feel like you’ve passed something but nothing is visible in the toilet or when wiping, may suggest that you are one of the healthiest individuals out there. It is a sign that your body is receiving adequate amounts of fiber and fatty acids while maintaining proper circadian rhythms aligned with nature. Understanding the nuances of your bodily functions can be an important indicator of overall health and well-being. #poop #guthealth #circadianrhythms #pooptok #wellness

Bowring alleged that your poop has gone into the abyss of the toilet bowl due to the result of a healthy diet and sleep cycle.

“It’s because you’ve got that fiber, you’ve got enough of those essential fatty acids, your circadian rhythms are in tune with nature with the light and dark cycle of the day, and you’ve got that ghost poop,” she explained in the clip.

And, according to California-based Registered Dietician Nutritionist Amanda Sauceda , it can also mean that your body is properly hydrated.

“If you’re wiping and there’s no residue on the paper, that can mean your diet has a good amount of fiber in it and you’re adequately hydrated,” Sauceda explained in an email to The Post on Tuesday.

Sauceda also added that you shouldn’t stress if you’re not having a ghost poop every day, as diets fluctuate — which means that our stools will, too.

Another TikToker named Steven Wright , founder of the supplement company The Healthy Gut , seconded Sauceda’s thoughts in a May 2022 video, revealing that these kinds of bowel movements are “ideal” — but you shouldn’t expect to have them all the time.

“When I say ideal, it’s because it’s what we’re shooting for on a regular basis, but it’s probably not going to happen every day,” he said in the clip, which has since amassed more than 50,000 views.

Wright also claimed that a “ghost poop” is considered a “four” on the Bristol Stool Chart — a research tool that “classifies feces” into seven different categories in order to tell you about the health of your bowel movements, according to The Cleveland Clinic .

A “four” on the BSC indicates a thin and “snakelike” poop that is also smooth and soft in texture.

Sauceda advised that “hard, pellet-like poop” and poop with “a lot of cracks on the surface” are both not “healthy” — ranking as a 1 or a 3 on the BSC.

To achieve a smooth and “snakelike” ghost poop, people should try to eat more plants and consume foods that have fiber in them.

Even more crucial is making sure that you’re staying hydrated, as fiber has a harder time moving through the gut without water.

“Plants are your best fiber foods, and fiber helps you poop easier and keeps you pooping on the regular,” Sauceda told The Post. “Some stand-out fiber foods are avocado, berries, beans and whole grains.”

However, in some cases, the ghost poop could also be a sign of malabsorption, according to Balsamo.

“While this can be indicative of healthy digestion, it should not be solely relied upon as a definitive measure of one’s digestive health,” Balsamo explained.

“On one hand, floating stool may suggest the presence of steatorrhea (excess fat in the stool) or malabsorption. However, it can also be attributed to a high fiber diet, which can lead to increased gas production.”

If you don’t find yourself having many — or any — ghost poops, you shouldn’t be alarmed, either.

In fact, having a ghost poop every day isn’t always ideal, Sauceda noted, as you are unable to see the changes in your feces if it just disappears all the time.

“It isn’t ideal 100% of the time because you can’t observe any changes in your poop,” she wrote. “If the poop disappears in the toilet bowel right after you go, then you won’t be able to see if there are color or consistency changes.”

And having a floating stool does not necessarily mean that you have some kind of underlying health condition, according to Balsamo.

“It is crucial to assess the overall context and consider other factors before drawing conclusions,” Balsamo advised.

She described that it’s important to seek the advice of a medical expert if you have a “specific concern” regarding what’s been left in the toilet after you go to the bathroom, or if you’ve had changes to your digestive health.

Sauceda also pointed out that if you’re not going to the bathroom very often, that should be another sign to talk to your doctor.

“Pooping is like taking out the trash and you want to be doing it often,” she told The Post. “If you’re going more than three days without pooping, that could be a sign to talk with your doctor.”

The Curious Case of Ghost Poops

El Duderino

El Duderino

Poop comes in countless shapes, sizes, consistencies, and smells . Perhaps the form of your fecal matter is remarkably consistent and you rarely see any surprises. But for some people, poops are like a box of chocolates—you never know what you’re gonna get.

One type of turd that has recently generated buzz is a ghost poop.

One of these sandwiches immediately gave me the rare ghost poop, where you know you pooped but there's no proof of it on the TP. Conflicted emotions. pic.twitter.com/r4xiRzq0bC — Clara Sia (@seriouslyclara) September 22, 2021

The scholars at Urban Dictionary defined ghost poops as “The single most satisfying bowel movement that man is capable of.” 

Generally speaking, a ghost poop means you experience the relief of a bowel movement without seeing any evidence of it, whether inside the toilet bowl or when you wipe your butt . However, There’s a heated debate online as to what exactly constitutes a ghost poop.

Rather than taking a hard side, we deferred to a doctor to explain the full spectrum of this mysterious phenomenon.

What Is a Ghost Poop?

As gastroenterologist Dr. Sameer Islam explains on his YouTube channel , there are three types of bowel movements that can be defined as ghost poops. Let’s break down each one and explain why (and how) they happen.

1. Poop That Doesn’t Leave Any Remnants When You Wipe

In rare instances, poop slides out so smoothly that it doesn’t leave any residue around your butt hole. This stands in stark contrast to those problematic poops where you wipe endlessly and can’t seem to get yourself clean. 

According to Dr. Islam, there are two explanations for poop that makes a clean getaway. The first is that you had really good, healthy poop. “Not every single bowel movement needs to have something residual left in your bottom,” he says. 

The second explanation is that you had a very small bowel movement. “Sometimes small bowel movements don’t leave any trace behind…not a big deal.”

Considering the lack of maintenance involved, these are one of the most prized types of poops. BuzzFeed writer Becky Barnicoat called ghost poops “insane, mythical, and highly sought after.” Urban Dictionary went as far as calling it “the king of all poops.”

If you want to increase your number of easy, smooth poops, Dr. Islam recommends adding prebiotic fibers to your diet, such as asparagus, bananas, apples, and oats.

2. When You Try to Poop, But Only Farts Come Out

If you feel a bowel movement coming, but can only manage to squeeze out a few farts on the toilet, that’s another kind of ghost poop. 

“This is explained by having too much air in the colon and in the rectum,” says Dr. Islam. “It activates the nerves inside your colon and the rectum, giving you that urge to have a bowel habit.”

Even though you don’t poop, you may still feel relief from releasing all that tension in your gut. In most cases, this type of ghost poop is caused by eating a lot of “gassy” foods like artificial sweeteners or swallowing too much air (usually because of drinking straws).

Mistaking poop for a fart is generally harmless. However, mistaking a fart for a poop has dire consequences (for more on this, check out our sharting survival guide ).

3. Poop That Disappears Down the Drain

In most cases, poop either sinks to the bottom of the toilet bowl or floats on top of the water . But it’s also possible for poop to slide down the drain without leaving a trace—you feel it, but you can’t see it. This is the third and final variation of ghost poop. It’s like an Olympic diver who goes straight to the bottom of the pool without making a splash.

That usually happens when your poop is long and smooth—a sign you have a super healthy gut .

“I would celebrate—you had a magical, ghostly poo,” says Dr. Islam. “Not a problem at all, nothing to worry about.”

Yes, You Need to Wipe After a Ghost Poop

Even if your undercarriage isn’t slathered with fecal matter, it’s still wise to wipe while you’re on the john. A quick maintenance wipe prevents swamp ass , stops bacteria from building up, and saves your undies from skid marks.

Don’t punish your butt with dry toilet paper though—keep your third pit fresh AF with flushable DUDE Wipes . They’re infused with aloe and Vitamin E to sooth your nether regions and help you steer clear of swassy situations.

As Dave Portnoy reminds us, “When you’re rich, only two things matter: flying private and cleaning your asshole.”

Truth behind the ‘ghost poo’ and why it actually happens

Truth behind the ‘ghost poo’ and why it actually happens

People have all sorts of names for their poo.

I know, it's a bold topic for a morning, but you're the one who clicked this article.

There's a classic sh*t and the polite 'number two', but if you've ever plopped out a poo only to find there's absolutely no sign of it on the toilet paper, then you, my friend, have experienced a 'ghost poo'.

You're confident you felt it leave your body, but still the toilet paper remains clean and you might not even be able to see the poo in the bowl, making you have doubts about what just happened.

Surely it's not the poo itself that's a phantom, so why does the 'ghost poo' happen?

Doctor and TikToker Janine Bowring has taken to the platform to explain the phenomenon, revealing that not only does it save you a bit on toilet paper, but it also is a sign that you're in good health .

Revealing a whole plate full of fake poos - again, you brought this on yourself - Bowring said: "If you have this type of poop, you might just be the healthiest person on the planet.

"It is the ghost poop. The poop where you look in the toilet, you're like 'I'm sure I pooped, but it's gone'... you even wipe and you're like 'I thought I pooped, I don't see anything."

The doctor went on to explain why this can happen, revealing that one of the reasons is because you 'probably have enough fibre ' in your diet.

"If I pooed... why couldn't I see it?" Credit:  Andrew Neel/Pexels

"It's because you've got that fibre, you've got enough of those essential fatty acids, your circadian rhythms are in tune with nature, with the light and dark cycle of the day, and you've got that ghost poop," she said.

Dr. Bowring's claims were echoed by NHS GP Dr Philippa Kaye, who confirmed that unloading yourself without any trouble is a sign of good health.

Per The Sun, she explained: "Stool which is easily passed without straining yet isn't too loose can be a healthy stool as it is not constipation or diarrhoea.

"A normal bowel habit can range from several times a day to twice a week. The key is to know what is normal for you and to see a doctor if this changes."

If you've never experienced a ghost poo, you might want to think about upping your fibre and fatty acid intake - not only could it improve your health, but it might just save you some money on toilet paper, too.

The truth about ‘ghost’ poos and why it’s a sign you’re ‘one of the healthiest people on the planet’

IF you ever go to the loo and what comes out seemingly vanishes without a trace, then you've had what's known as a "ghost poo".

Similarly, if you've wiped your behind and there's been nothing on the toilet roll, that too is an elusive number two.

A 'ghost poo' suggests your bowel movements are healthy

Both can be incredibly satisfying, but also rather baffling.

The good news is, experts say they're both signs your gut is in good health.

Naturopathic doctor Janine Bowring even went as far as to say: "If you have this type of poop, you might just be the healthiest person on the planet."

It's unclear where the term "ghost poo" originated, but it's easy to see how it got its name.

"It's the poop where you look in the toilet and you think, 'I'm sure I just pooped, but it's gone'," Bowring said.

"You even wipe and you're like, 'I thought I pooped, I don't see anything'."

The author and mum-of-five, who goes by @j9naturally on TikTok, reckons there is a simple explanation.

"Well, you probably have enough fibre," she said in a short video on the app.

The Canadian added that a ghost poo can also mean you're getting enough essential fatty acids in your diet, such as omega-3 and omega-6.

Dr Philippa Kaye, an NHS GP, agreed that faeces passing without trouble is an indicator of good health.

She said: "Stool which is easily passed without straining yet isn't too loose can be a healthy stool as it is not constipation or diarrhoea ."

Overall, it's about going regularly and keeping track of any abnormalities, she added.

"A normal bowel habit can range from several times a day to twice a week," Dr Kaye said.

"The key is to know what is normal for you and to see a doctor if this changes.

"I would recommend that people do look at their stool and the paper to check for blood."

By being aware of your usual toilet habits, you are more able to spot signs of change, such as symptoms of bowel cancer, one of which is blood in stool.

The Bristol Stool Chart is an easy way to identify any changes - and diagnose certain bowel conditions.

Developed in 1997, it describes seven types of poo and what each one means.

  • Types 1 to 2 indicate constipation
  • Types 3 to 4 are ideal as they pass easily
  • Types 5 to 7 suggest diarrhoea and urgency

GP Sarah Jarvis said: "Your poo can definitely say a lot about your bowel health.

"The Bristol Stool Chart is widely used by doctors to identify what your poos look like.

"They go from type 1 – very hard pellets, like rabbit droppings – to type 7 – an entirely liquid poo with no solid pieces.

"Types 6 and 7 usually mean you have a tummy bug or an inflammatory bowel problem, whereas types 1 and 2 are much more common and show you’re constipated.

"Constipation is linked to all sorts of other medical problems such as piles, diverticular disease and even an increased risk of bowel cancer if this is a long term issue.

"In the middle is type 4 – a smooth, soft sausage.

Serving northeast ohio, (216) 772-4653, spooky ghost poop.

Recently I had a patient tell me that ever since her hemorrhoids have been successfully treated in the private comfort of my office, she has spooky ghost poops. Naturally we shared a laugh before she explained to me that when she goes to the bathroom to poop, there is no wiping. Everything just slides out and it’s like nothing was there.

See, when you suffer from hemorrhoids, you may also suffer from the never-ending wipe—trying to get clean after you move your bowels only to find that miles of toilet paper later you can’t. Because hemorrhoids are enlarged, the sphincter muscle can’t close all the way. So, after you “go,” you can’t get clean because the poop still inside is exposed.

Other types of ghost poop can be the kind that slips out and disappears at the bottom of the bowl, or the big ones that feel little because they slide out effortlessly. The point is, ghost poop is the goal, and I can help you get there.

I have two treatments designed to safely eliminate hemorrhoids. One reduces the blood flow that feeds the hemorrhoids, improving inflammation and causing them to shrink. The other is better suited to removing larger hemorrhoids. Both take just a few seconds to do. Since they are performed in an area with no nerve endings, they can be administered right in the comfort of my office without anesthesia.

There is virtually no pain, no prep needed, there are no major restrictions, and you don’t have to take time off of work. Consultations are free of charge, and our procedures are covered by insurance.

What Is a ‘Ghost Poop’ and Why Is It Going Viral on TikTok?

Ghost poops have taken over TikTok thanks to viral videos with over 20 million views about the infamous bowel-related phenomenon.

What Is a Ghost Poop?

No, it's not when a spooky specter goes number two in a haunted house.

A "ghost poop" is defined as stool that sinks to the bottom of the toilet, so when you go to look for it, it seemingly disappears into your toilet's pipes.

A "ghost poop" can also refer to when no trace of fecal matter appears on the toilet paper when you wipe after going to the bathroom.

According to Dr. Janine Bowring, if you recently had a ghost poop, “you may just be the healthiest person on the planet."

She claims the phenomenon happens when a person has enough fiber, essential fatty acids and their "circadian rhythms are in tune with nature with the light and dark cycle of the day."

According to @HealthyGutSteven on TikTok, this type of smooth stool does not happen on a regular basis.

"It's a beautiful poop in how it looks and how it feels," he says.

The Bristol Stool Chart , which was developed in 1997 as a clinical assessment tool, puts ghost poop at number four on their chart for healthy poops.

According to doctors, an ideal stool sits between numbers three and four on their chart.

Now, other TikTokers are now celebrating their own ghost poops — yes, really! Some have been sharing the phenomenon since 2020.

Why Does My Poop Disappear in the Toilet: All About Ghost Poop

Most people experience ghost poops at some point during their lifetime, prompting the question, “why does my poop disappear in the toilet?” According to Dr. Islam in an article published in Menshealth, a ghost poop refers to one of the following three descriptions.

  • A soft, smooth poop that sinks into the toilet before you see it
  • A feeling of pooping only to produce gas.
  • Poop that appears in the toilet drain but is not visible when you wipe.

Dr. Islam has described ghost poop very well in this youtube video:

What Causes Ghost Poo?

If you are wondering, “why did my poop disappear?” then read on to know why. Ghost poops indicate both normal and health issues.

A few reasons why you can’t see poop in the toilet include:

Excess Consumption of Processed Foods

Processed foods such as white bread and plain pasta have low or lack fiber. Inadequate fiber causes constipation that interferes with normal bowel movement . When you eat processed foods, you may experience farts instead of pooping, or sometimes there is no evidence when you wipe after defecating. If you cannot avoid processed foods, try to include other  fiber-rich foods  and a lot of fluids into your diet.

A Sensitive Stomach

An easily upset or irritated stomach characterizes a sensitive stomach. You might have experienced ghost poops when your stomach is sensitive to certain foods or medications. For instance, you experience intestinal blockages or constipation when you go to the toilet. In this case, you are advised to see your doctor.

Undiagnosed Health Condition

Sometimes you will experience ghost poops if you have an undetected medical condition. You feel like pooping but when you visit a washroom, the feeling disappears and then reappears after some time. Health conditions like  irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease  have been known to cause these kinds of ghost poops. Consult your doctor if you are frequently experiencing ghost poops.

Inadequate Hydration

Inadequate hydration is another cause of ghost poops. Your stool can become hard and difficult to pass when your body is dehydrated. When your body has insufficient water, it becomes difficult to digest food and eliminate waste materials. This result in small hard stools that are difficult to see in the toilet bowl , giving the appearance of a ghost poop. Drinking a lot of water will help you eliminate your disappearing ghost stools.

Inadequate Fiber-rich Diet

Fiber is necessary for healthy bowel movements. If your dietary patterns have zero carbs, zero fiber, and zero vegetables, you will likely experience ghost poops. Therefore, it would be best if you thought about incorporating a fiber supplement into your daily routine. Consider eating whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes to increase fiber supplements.

Ghost Poop Types

Your poop reveals serious health issues such as  digestive issues and various infections  including early signs of cancer. Knowing whether your poop sinks, floats, or is a ghost poop is essential to understanding your health, diet, and lifestyle.

The 3 main types of ghost poops include:

1. Fart Instead of Poop

Pooping and farting are normal biological functions of the body, and it is normal to produce gas during pooping. However, farting while initially you had a pooping feeling is not normal, indicating a health concern.

Managing a fart after feeling of bowel movement shows that your colon and rectum have too much air. Most often, farting is caused by eating gassy foods such as beans or swallowing too much air.

You can avoid this dreadful gas by dodging gassy foods. It would be best if you also considered using drinking straws carefully to avoid swallowing air.

2. Poop that Leaves No Traces on Tissue Paper When You Wipe

Not every bowel movement leaves traces on the toilet paper . If the poop easily slides and no evidence is left when you wipe, your bowel is doing excellent work.

Your bowel compacts the stool into anal-friendly poop and dries it before it is excreted. Having nothing to wipe after pooping means your bowel is normal and does not bother your little bum hole.

However, a lack of fecal traces when you wipe can also indicate dehydration. In many cases, dehydration occurs when your large intestine has removed all fluids that your body requires from the consumed food, leaving none to push your poop out.

In this case, you should consider fiber-rich foods and take a lot of fluids to save yourself from pain and bleeding.

3. Poop that Sinks Leaving No Evidence in the Toilet

Once in a while, you may have experienced poop sinking right to the bottom of the toilet bowl. In these cases, you may have pooped but there is no poop in toilet .

A disappearing poop is a long smooth ghost poop that disappears in toilet and indicates your gut is in a healthy condition. Be glad that you have a magical poop. Nothing to worry about!

Incredible Tips to Enhance your Bowel Movement

Regular bowel movement is known to be a sign of good health. Below are a few tips you employ to improve and increase the frequency of your bowel movements.

  • Eating a high-fiber diet can help bowel movements make the stool softer and easier to pass.
  • Exercising stimulates the digestive system to make it easier to pass poops.
  • Using over-the-counter laxatives or stool softeners where necessary. Constipation relief medications include laxatives and stool softeners. Laxatives work by softening and making stools easier to pass. Stool softeners will add moisture to your poops, thus preventing ghost poops.
  • Keeping hydrated helps to keep the stool soft and easy to pass.
  • Limiting your intake of constipating foods can help you avoid hard, difficult-to-pass stools. For instance, limit your intake of fried foods, dairy products such as eggs, and processed foods.

Why Does My Poop Disappear in the Toilet? Are Ghost Poops Healthy?

We have covered what ghost poop is, the types of ghost poops, and how to maintain your bowel movement. But you may be asking yourself, “is a ghost poop healthy?” Most ghost poops have no cause for concern because they indicate a healthy working gut. To avoid ghost poops if you are irritated with them, maintain a healthy diet with plenty of water and fiber-rich foods. However, if the condition persists, consult your doctor.

What Is A Ghost Poop? An Ultimate Guide

' src=

What the heck is a “ghost poop,” and what does it even mean if you have one, you’re probably already wondering.

Three definitions of a ghost poop are as follows: the urge to poop that ends up only being gas; a poop so smooth that it went down the drain before you could see it, and lastly; a visible poop in the toilet, but zero poop marks on your toilet paper after wiping.

For more information, continue reading.

What Is A Ghost Poop?

As far as the first type of ghost poop, “This is brought on by an excessive amount of air in the colon and rectum. “You experience the urge to urinate as a result of it innervating or activating the nerves in your colon [and rectum].” Eating bloating foods, experiencing constipation, or even taking in too much air are the culprits.

The best way to stop this horrifying gas is to simply avoid eating foods that cause you to have a lot of gas, avoid swallowing too much air (typically by drinking through a straw), and maintain regular bowel movements.

The second ghost poop isn’t one to worry about, It should be honored for being such an amazing bowel movement, says Dr. Islam.

The third type of ghost poop might feel bizarre, but it’s also nothing to fear, according to Dr. Islam says, “It’s like a ghost that disappears.” This is a sign that your poop was so small or smooth that it simply didn’t leave a mark; there is no need to be concerned.

You Need To Wipe After A Ghost Poop

It’s still a good idea to wipe while using the restroom, even if your undercarriage isn’t covered in feces. Swamp ass can be avoided, bacterial growth can be stopped, and skid marks can be avoided on your underwear with a quick maintenance wipe.Keep your third pit fresh AF with flushable DUDE Wipes rather than punishing your butt with dry toilet paper. They have aloe and vitamin E infused into them to soothe your underwear and keep you from getting swassy.

Is Ghost Poop Bad?

While the second and third types of ghost poop (smooth and free of residue) are indicators of healthy bowel movements, the first type of ghost poop (gas only) is unhealthy. It indicates either constipation or too much air in your stomach.

When the urge strikes, it’s not always possible to find the time or a convenient location to use the restroom. Due to the excessive lingering and moisture loss caused by this, your fecal matter becomes hard and pellet-like. Then, when you finally reach the restroom and feel the need to use it, nothing is there.

This kind of ghost poop (only gas) is bad for you, especially for your digestion and the delicate lining of your rectum. When those tiny, hard pellets do finally emerge, they may jar the tissue and create fissures.

You could develop chronic bowel issues if this keeps happening regularly, which could be related to immune system issues, weight gain, and hemorrhoids.

Is Ghost Poop Healthy?

Ghost poop is bad for your digestive system and the delicate lining of your rectum because when those hard, little pellets finally come out, they can irritate the tissue and lead to fissures. Moreover, immune system issues, weight gain, and hemorrhoids may all be related to chronic bowel issues.

Tips For Better Bowel Movement

Contrary to popular belief, having some of the best poop of your life is simpler than you might think. Here are some of the simplest suggestions you can try to have more regular and better bowel movements:

  • Eat more prebiotic food and fiber – Prebiotics are fibers that your body cannot digest but which can encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut. These plant fibers travel to your lower digestive tract where the good bacteria in your gut can consume them since your body cannot digest them. Garlic, bananas, barley, oats, and apples are a few of the more widely available prebiotics.
  • Establish a good bowel habit – Avoiding prolonged toilet use is the simplest way to develop good bowel habits. Spend as little time as possible, attend to your needs, and then leave. Keeping a routine is beneficial as well.
  • Add a bidet to your bowel regimen – Yes, bidets have existed for a very long time. In fact, the majority of people in Europe have begun using bidets. A bidet will help you stay clean and will make you feel good after your bowel routine.
  • Add magnesium to your diet – Magnesium, whether taken orally or in foods, aids in promoting bowel movement and increasing the amount of water in the intestines.
  • Invest in a Squatty Potty – By keeping your legs elevated and giving you a better angle to have a bowel movement, this inexpensive yet useful item works wonders. The original Squatty Potty is available for purchase right now on Amazon.com.

Along with the five suggestions listed above, always respect your urges. Don’t wait to poop when you need to use the restroom.

But we also recognize that sometimes it’s not possible.

In order to keep the poop soft enough to pass easily when the time comes, drink plenty of fluids throughout the day if you must hold it in for any reason.

How To Make Ghost Poop?

Ingredients:

  • 1 envelope (2-3/4 tsp) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Piping Bag or plastic bag
  • Baking Sheet
  • Silicone sheet or parchment paper

Directions:

  • Add gelatin to 1/3 cup cold water in a medium mixing bowl to soften.
  • Stirring constantly, dissolve 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan with the granulated sugar.
  • Boil until the temperature reaches the soft-ball stage (238 degrees F) on a candy thermometer – do not stir or you will produce large sugar crystals. Brush the inside of the pan’s edges with water to remove sugar crystals.
  • Pour the mixture into the gelatin bowl gradually and whisk for three minutes at medium speed.
  • Increase the speed to high and whisk for 8 to 10 minutes, or until soft peaks begin to form.

Transfer the ghost poop goo to a piping bag with a large round tip or a plastic baggie, then snip off the end.

On parchment or a silicone sheet, pipe into mounds.

Poop will become soft inside and crunchy outside if left outside.

Ghost poop will continue to be soft and gooey if kept in a closed container.

The Bottom Line

The single most satisfying bowel movement a man is capable of, according to the experts at Urban Dictionary, is a “ghost poop.””

In general, a “ghost poop” is when you feel the relief of a bowel movement without noticing any signs of it, either in the toilet bowl or on your butt wipes.
