The overwhelming excitement caused by shopping in some women might lead to something more shocking. An article from Scary Mommy reported that some people feel a strong urge to poop when they enter a certain kind of stores. Citing her own experience, the writer talked about how entering a Target store made her want to 'take a deuce.' Surprised by this phenomenon, she decided to dive into comprehensive research of what might be causing it. One of the first things that the writer figured out was that she was not alone in having these kinds of feelings. When she began speaking out about her issue, she found that a lot of her friends felt the same way whenever they visited a certain kind of store.

For some, it was the smell of the Barnes and Nobles store, while for others it happened while visiting the aisles at CVS, HomeGoods, or Costco.


It was further reported that there was no exact explanation about the reasons behind this strange tendency. But several theories suggested that it might have been something to do with the particular smell of the store that gets the digestive juices flowing.

Just like the smell of food making your digestive juices go crazy, the smell of shopping stores might have also made the women have a strong urge to poop.

The writer also admitted that a lot of friends agreed about being overwhelmed 'in an exciting kind of way' because of shopping, which might 'release' their need to use the restroom. She then confirmed that that logic might have some kind of backing from the science.




Quoting research in Harvard Medical School publication, as provided in Healthbeat, the writer informed us that our emotions can have 'pretty profound effects on our poo-ing."

“The gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to emotion. Anger, anxiety, sadness, elation — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut,” the report from Healthbeat suggested.
