Wierd personal problem- am I alone? (kinda gross)

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
After giving birth to 3 big, beautiful babies, my body has changed alot- as one would expect.
Here's the embarrassing bit. I have found that occasionally I get air in my vagina. If I pass gas while sitting down, sometimes it re-directs into my vagina or if dh & I are intimate, I often get air in there that only comes out later with kegels. : I'm not overly stretched out or anything. I don't know why this happens. I don't know what to do about it, and I'm afraid it may be unhealthy. Has anyone else ever had this problem? I'm really embarrased to ask, but I am hoping there's not something wrong with me. i have never heard anyone mention this before.

Totally normal. I think there was a funny thread about this a few months back.

Normal and not exclusive to those who have had children.

The same thing has happened to me since having three kids. I have reason to believe that I am not all, uh, stretched out or anything, but yeah I have that problem sometimes now. Not so much before I had kids.

That would happen to me even before I had my son.

Vagina farts? Yeah, I think it's a relatively *normal* phenomenon among those who haven't even had kids. Mine was a c/s and I know it's happened from time to time. Pretty embarrassing!

Totally normal In high school (pre-babies!), everyone called it "queefing." (Not sure of the spelling...)

Yup, very normal. I also find that certain sexual posistions make the problem worse .....like doggystyle.... although sex isn't always the cause of it happening.

Oh yeah baby! There's nothing like a hot and heavy sexcapade and in the middle of it - a loud vajaja fart! NICE!

Yeah, I get that sitting down redirection thing, too. I especially hate it when it's at work and I worry that if I stand, it'll make a noise. eeek!

I began to experience this right after I had my daughter. Embarassing, yet a little amusing at times.

I have been known to stop mid sex (air pockets kinda kill the mood) and stand up to do a hula hoop move to get the air out. DH thinks it's really funny.

I experienced it occasionally (like a few times a year) pre-baby and more than occasionally (now a few times a month) post-baby. Thankfully it's never noisy!

this happens to me more often than i care to admit...i tore really badly with DS, and can't help but wonder if something went wrong with my stitching, you know? a crossed wire, per se

there is even a treatment for yeast that includes deliberate sucking in of air-- I think it was in one of the earlier our bodies ourselves books or a new view of a woman's body-- or some old book like that. actually I was getting more air in before I had kids-- or maybe it had to do with how agile we were then-

so really it happens to lots of women
if you are worried about tone it doesn't usually hurt to do some extra kegels -- but it may not change the situation ---

take care

I squirted water out of my nose while reading this thread.

The most embarrassing thing happened to me the other day regarding this very same thing! I had NO idea there was any air up there, but I walked all the way from my office to the front office and then while I was standing there on the phone, a "queef" just came out! I could hear it! I just kept talking on the phone like nothing had happened, but I'm sure the other two people in the room had to have heard it.

They were both female and were kind enough to act like nothing had happened. I honestly don't know if I've ever been more embarrassed!

Oh, and this was happening to me way before I started having children! In fact, I think it happened more before the kids.......

OMG!! laughup .... : I mean, WOW! hahahaha... *sigh*

The best is when you go to walk across a room and some air audibly comes out with each and every step. I can never keep a straight face, I just bust out laughing and usually can't stop until I leave the room.

Not trying to minimize your concern at all, OP, it's just all the replies got me thinking about funny embarrassing moments. Oooh, I really needed that today -- thanks ladies!

You know, that didn't happen to me until after baby three, when my perineum just wasn't as in tact as it used to be after three 10 lb babes. Glad to hear it's normal and I'm not the only one!
