How do yall make less gagging and retching noises? I live in an apartment and the bathroom is very small witg the window in an air shaft. Obviously I keep the window closed and run the shower etc to mask, but do worry about neighbors hearing and potentially saying something to my fiance. I have tried relaxing but no amount of deep breathing seems to reduce the sound. Anyone have any techniques they can share that have been able to help bring the decibel level down?

for me what did the trick was CHEWING everything down to liquid (adding condiments and sipping milk/juice as needed), and when i'm purging i'm standing up, legs straight, bent over at my waist with my head as far down as possible. that way the puke comes out pretty streamlined and i make less noise

for me, two things

 

1 - standing and just bending down. the food doesnt have to fight against gravity, so its less retching

2 - the longer you do it, the more your gag reflex dies, and the less sound it makes

I agree with Scarecrows ^

 

Also for me drinking the right amount of liquid so the vom has a thicker consistency and doesn't make splashing sounds

I hf purge so I don’t make much noise
Neighbors don’t usually intervene and people’s first conclusions are not bulimia. Most people will think pregnancy, sickness, food poisoning before jumping to bulimia. Wouldn’t it be weird if you went up to someone’s husband and was like “why does your gf puke all the time? Is she pregnant?” That would be pretty invasive like not your business.

I dated a guy who had a neighbor that audibly barfed a lot. Never would have said anything of course but I'm really paranoid, I know it's highly unlikely but it's just stressful.

HF doesn't do it for me, I've done it but it just doesnt satisfy the same for some reason.

But I gotta say the standing up thing is a game changer. Totally quieter and faster. I feel mad dumb that I've been squatting this whole time like wtf brain, come on. Thank you guys so much!

i dont know about using fizzy drinks or chewing to liquid.

i do both, and my partner can hear me shoving fingers down my throat through a closed window into the backyard. and if i use sparkling water, i end up projectile vomiting and have to aim, im sure it can be heard...
