to ask a really embarrassing question about farting?

This is waaaaay too much information but I'm just wondering if this is normal or happens to anyone else...

Since having DS1 5 months ago I've found that when I fart, instead of it going out backwards, i.e. behind me, it comes forwards, as in between my legs. Particularly when sat or laid down. The really gross thing is if it's a 'bubble fart' (where it comes out feeling like bubbles rather than a puff of air - DH assures me that he gets both types of fart too) sometimes I feel one of the bubbles go up my fanny, actually entering my vagina! And even worse, when I sit up, I feel it come back out. It's gross!

Please please tell me I'm not the only one!

Sounds like your arse has changed shape? Doesn't matter how they come out, it's the damage they inflict!

Sorry OP, I don't get bubble farts, no confused

Queenbean Sun 22-May-16 22:46:30

I love that feeling. Sometimes I try and push them forwards

Oh op, everything changes once a set of human head and shoulders emerges from your foof! I was particularly distressed by post-baby after bath backflow - never happened with my nice tight pre-baby snatch! I'm sure it's perfectly normal but maybe get a nice female GP to give you the once over. I had third degree tears and have permanent damage/ issues but never really noticed farts changing. But maybe everything just feels different once it's been stretch to 15000 times its natural size???

Unnatural bloody process this birthing bollocks.

I've always had these, aren't they fanny farts? Where you fart normally but it comes out the front, and yes it's bubbly... I guess it mixes with the moisture grin I mostly do behind ones though. Oh the things this forum makes me say grin

Sounds like an anal prolapse. See your GP who can refer you for tests which could lead to biofeedback therapy. If left without therapy you are more likely to have issues such as cystitis.

Queenbean Sun 22-May-16 22:51:59

It is NOT an anal prolapse!!

Hahahaa
I love farts. I love fart threads. This makes me happy.

I know exactly what you are talking about. Bubble squish farts.

Cluesue Sun 22-May-16 22:52:16

Perfectly normal

DuckAndPancakes Sun 22-May-16 22:53:44

A queef (fanny fart) is totally different to a forward rolling arse fart that tickles through your flaps.

Ahem.

Bloody pelvic floor. Here, take this buiscuit flowersbiscuit

embarrasseddoesntcutit Sun 22-May-16 22:54:37

I love you guys.

Seriously, where else could you ask such questions!

edwinbear Sun 22-May-16 22:54:49

An anal prolapse would cause way more issues than some misdirected farts. As PP have said, all kinds of weird stuff happens when you expel another human out of your nether regions. Trip to the GP if you're worried GP but it's relatively early days yet, your body is still healing.

BillBrysonsBeard Sun 22-May-16 22:56:50

queenbean Good link grin I have found my bottom burping fanny flapping people.

duck Ahh I see.. I don't think I have ever queefed then shock

Unicow Sun 22-May-16 22:57:57

That thread linked above is brilliant. They even named them. It's common and nothing to worry about.

kinkytoes Sun 22-May-16 22:59:40

Hilarious thread grin I love these conversations.

My dd is only 5 weeks old and I've been getting this. Sort of a satisfying feeling. Dd is my second and I don't remember having this before. I wonder if it will stay or disappear as our bodies return to almost normal?

ToastyFingers Sun 22-May-16 23:00:26

I've always had this (cringe)

Are you ample bottomed OP?

I have a giant are and I think it changes the direction of your farts when you lie on your back iyswim.

DuckAndPancakes Sun 22-May-16 23:00:37

Bill - never?
You've never got air up there... When doing the deed? Especially if in a bottoms up sort of position.

DuckAndPancakes Sun 22-May-16 23:01:49

Toasty - I've also got a giant arse and agree that it's probably the flesh pushing it that way. Especially if lying down. It can't escape in the same way as for small arsed people.
