What Causes Stomach Noises?

When you are in a meeting or taking a test and everyone around you is quiet, it never seems to fail that your stomach makes noises so loud everyone around you heard it! Talk about embarrassing! You may want to scream shut up but gurgling is actually a good thing so try not to get embarrassed the next time it happens to you. These sounds are caused by liquid and air in the bowels being moved by the contractions of your bowels.
