For the last few months, I have been experiencing what I can only explain as vaginal gas. It usually happens after I've been sitting for a long period of time or have been sleeping and climb out of bed. I've researched online, but have only found explanations of this happening after sex...and in my case, it's been more than several months (closer to a year) since I've had sex, so I know that's not the issue. Has anyone else had this problem and did they come up with a solution? I don't have any strange discharge or pain of any kind...my periods are regular and I've never had any other female problems. I had a child 11 years ago, but this problem has come up within the last few months. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
It's better to burn out, than fade away.
Don't worry, it's normal. It doesn't necessarily have to occur in connection with sex. If you move in such a way that expands the vagina and allows air to enter, then later you will probably move in such a way that compresses that air and squeezes it out. A common setting for this is when you are doing sit-ups. I'm not really sure that there is anything that you can do about it. But it's not a problem. Hope that helps.
My daughter will kill me for writing this, so don't tell her!! But she actually can do this all the time when she wants to. She discovered her "special talent" as we so endearingly call it when getting up from her bed one day. Since then she just figured out she can do it whenever she wants! Not that it is necessarily a good thing, but the point is that it's something that just happens as kehorner says when air gets trapped inside and forced out by sitting up or bending, etc. In my extensive research for this - which is called a "vart" or vaginal fart or queefing (there are some other creative names I won't mention) - I didn't find anything that says it can be prevented nor is it dangerous - It's just another one of those great things about being a woman!!
