I am not sickly in anyway but I have a problem that worries me and is very troublesome.
Since the birth of my second baby last year april I have been getting many bubbles from the vaginal and anal area.I had an episotomy for both births, the first required many stitches the second was less stitches needed.I have read about the vaginal bubbles and are not concerned about them. I am concerned about the anal bubbles that are released when I just sit down or bend wearing tight jeans or just walking. The air bubbles do not smell, they are small bubbles one or a few at a time. I am not releasing gas.it does not feel like I am passing wind down and out of my anus.they just occur passively. What are these bubbles? am I releasing gas continously without me knowing or without me actively farting? or cud air get trapped in the entrance of my anus when i move and then just get released? mayb due to weak sphincter muscles from birth or not?Please help if possible.Am i farting cont?
The symptoms you reported might be related to weakened anal sphincter muscles due to the births. The bubbles might be actually gas but not in the regular quantity, so they are perceived as bubbles.
You might want to see if this happens more often when taking certain type of food and then avoid it. Taking carbo medicinalis might absorb the extra gasses, thus eliminating most of the bubbles. As for the weakened sphincter muscles, no medical treatment can be suggested.
