Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
See either your GP, your midwife or a GUM clinic. I have vaguely heard of something like this, and it usually means there is some kind of damage to your perineum or to the wall between your rectum and your vagina.
(I'm not a medic but I have an annoyingly retentive memorey for all the really revolting medical pages in proleporn mags like Take A Break)
no no no it's not a medical issue - just sometimes the way the air exits your trouser region - sometimes it whooshes up the back of the pants and sometines it whooshes out the front flapping your fanjo en route. Happens to me quite often, always quite funny, could be to do with the way you're sitting or tightness of trousers etc.
Itsnotmee - I hope that answers your q as Jenkeywoos explanation (as well as 'proleporn' from mz) will have everyone roffling beyond any further sense.
I am stuffing my hands in my mouth to avoid waking DS.
thank you all. I hadn't realised until you said, but it does only happen when I'm sitting down. So guess that's the mystery solved. . I shall have to tip to one side (a la dog cocking a leg against a lamppost) every time I get rumbly of bowel.
see now this is why I love MN. Reading this while eating a chocolate biscuit and drinking coffee. Life doesn't get much better!
Actually I was very close to having this problem. Ds was big enough to tear the wall between the vag and rectal passage so if it hadn't healed properly I could have been pooing out the wrong hole. I've read about other people that this has happened to.
