Ive suffered with vaginal flatulence for years and what is worrying is that it happens not only during intercourse but all of the time. sometimes i cant even lie normally in bed without air being sucked in and when i get up to go down the stairs you can hear the fanny farts all the way down the stairs. my husband finds it funny but what if other people have noticed it? im worried its been caused by losing my viginity too young. with my first lover he used to blow inside during cunnilingus. Also, this sounds terrible but some girls at school used to have 'fanny farting' competitions, to which they taught me how to participate. since then it became the easiest way to 'fart on demand'. i know all of this sounds hilairous but im worried that all of this hs done me some serious long term damage. i have had 2 children (one c-section) but the wind in the randon wind in the vagina noises has occured long before i had the children. im not sure if im right but i think its worse when im ovulating? just walking round the kitchen when im wearing something loose, i can hear my lips knocking together like a tapping noise. really dont want someone to come round and hear me. i feel too embarassed to go to the doctors as all of this sounds ridiculous right? but then when ive spoken to friends theyve all encoutered it during sex but not just from general movemetn like i have. Please help anyone!

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Since the vaginal flatulence is lasting even at other times (and not only during intercourse), I suggest you to discuss about it with your gynecologist.
An examination is necessary to see if the toning up of the vaginal walls and the PC muscles will help in overcoming the problem.
After the examination, if indicated, you can go ahead with the exercise training to tone up the vaginal walls and the PC muscles to help you stop the ‘fanny farts’ or the vaginal flatulence. You have to be patient, since it got built up over many years, it will take a long time to go away.
Take care.
