I'm so glad I saw this thread under "new posts" -- here's hoping I actually can post now, since I keep losing connectivity for some reason.
Yes, to the odd queef and lots of observed changes during sex, but especially yes to this description:

Oh my gosh, this is so EXACTLY true for me. And I have described it repeatedly to my husband, perplexed as to how it can BE. Why does the wind blow FORWARD, now? (And, TMI warning........................................... .................................................. ......wiping is different, too. I mean, WHY? It's like my cheeks are somehow closer together and there's less surface area or clearance in the middle or something. But for whatever reason, cleaning up takes a whole lot longer and is more involved. Grrr.)
But yes, now much of the time my vagina rattles and reverberates when I fart. Sometimes it's sensation-only (a silent breeze in my own private vibrating glade) and sometimes it's a total amplifier for the sound. And it becomes a flappy, flappy noisy frontways fart. Bizarre. I'll even have an initially silent fart that goes forward and then gets all like a whoopy-cushion effect when it hits the labia. Yes, bizarre to experience. When it's the sensation-only (soundless) kind and the air just goes up into the vagina (to be released later, augh), I sometimes have the sensation that it's like sudden bubbles going up into an aquarium. It's so disconcerting to feel that!
(Of course, this sounds like I fart constantly! Not so much, but the difference when I do....man.)
I didn't know anybody else had experienced the forward farting. As well as the new types of sound-effects during sex.... I'd mentioned these things to two different midwives during exams, and they seemed mystified.
Aware of myself standing, I'd say maybe it's because my vagina/pelvic floor has dropped lower in front? And something about the orientation of the pelvis? Maybe it all makes sense, but it's not something I was expecting and it can be super annoying.
So reassuring to read this thread (and even more reassuring since I know you IRL, teacup. How weird is this?)
