Sewer Smell in Shower


Every morning when I start the shower there is a sewer smell that lasts for 10 seconds then is gone. When my wife showers 2+ hours later she smells nothing. Any ideas on what is causing this?

Your trap could be getting syphoned off in the night, you refill it when you shower.

If this was the case wouldnt the sewer smell be present before I turned on the shower?
