Gurgling sound in sink


Hi,

I am new to this forum. Hope someone can help. I purchased a house about 2 years ago. Just a few weeks ago, my second floor bathroom sink started to make a gurgling sound when the toilet in that bathroom is flushed. Does anybody know what this could be? Is it an easy fix, or do i need a plumber?

Thanks,

Jordan

Is the lav slow to drain? Maybe your pipes need to be snaked.

No, the toilet flushes fine and the sink drains fine. I had the tub snaked about 2 months ago cause it drained very slow.

Aloe,

Is there adequate venting on all of your fixtures?
