Vaginal queefing?

04/14/2008

Question:

Lately I have noticed my vagina is making bubbly sounds almost like a "fart" it is uncontrolable almost always discharge comes out. At times it has a funny ordor not fishy. Just not my smell.This is uncompfortable since it happens anywhere even at work. PLEASE HELP! What causes this and why is it happening?

Answer:

Vaginal gas is usually a product of air trapping after intercourse. It is difficult for air to enter and become trapped during normal, non- sexual activity. One of the concerns is if the gas is coming from an abnormal connection (fistula) between the bowels and vagina. You should be tested to see if this is occurring.
