Ah, new love. The excitement of a good morning text, the butterflies before a date, the cold terror at the thought of your new boo finding out you have bodily functions.

A Brazilian singer who goes by the stage name Pocah has shared her story of the consequences of “holding in” her farts around her boyfriend – a decision that saw her end up in hospital.

“I woke up at 5.30am with severe stomach pains and ended up in the hospital,” Pocah told her nearly 16 million Instagram followers alongside photos of her being admitted.

“But that’s it, guys. I’m now fine. Just an accumulation of trapped farts,” she explained.

Pocah had a warning for anyone – particularly the ladies, because society, duh – who felt they had to keep their gas under wraps.

“Girls, don’t be ashamed to fart in front of your guy,” she advised.

“Because what’s really embarrassing is not letting your guy sleep because you’re in discomfort, going to the hospital with your guy, and the diagnosis being ‘trapped farts’.

From now on, I’m letting them rip, guys.

Pocah said that she had since been “medicated” and was recovering from the ordeal.

You heard the woman! Better out than in, and better living, everyone.
