Sex

I think somethings changed internally.

Sorry this is really embarrassing but I'm. It sure if it's something I should be concerned about.

I have noticed the past few times I've had PIV sex I've had a really strong feeling that I'm going to pass wind or that my insides are going to come out of my bum! BlushBlush
This also co insides with a constant feeling of fullness (like I'm constipated but I'm not)
I've had no injury or damage down there and no other symptoms of anything being amiss.

I've managed to clench for dear life to keep it in but it kind of kills it for me!

This has never been something I have experienced before and I'm worried it means something has moved inside to cause this trapped wind.
I know it's a known thing with some positions like doggy style (I didn't usually get it then either though) but this was missionary!

I know I have a retroverted uterus but as said this has never happened until now but it's making me quite self aware. This didn't happen after 4 children, my youngest is 5 and it's only the last 3-4 months I've noticed it.

I should add for the sake of stopping the comments, DH wouldn't care if I did fart, I could talk to him about it and be kind or he'd he'd find it hilarious and then take my lead on what I wanted to do about it, we're quite open as a house home about flatulence but I'd rather not do it during sex!

It sounds like you may have a weak pelvic floor and some element of prolapse (either rectal or vaginal). Did you have tears or need forceps etc during any of your births? It may be worth doing regular pelvic floor exercises. There is an NHS app you can use.

No tears or forceps, I had 4 very, very quick births.
I will make sure to do my pelvic floors whenever possible and hope it resolved itself.

I have this too (3 children, the last at 39) and it's awful. Like you, my DH doesn't mind, but I do. I'm sure I have some kind of prolapse but Gp wasn't in the slightest bit interested and just said to do pelvic floor exercises. Youngest is 6 now and I am pretty fit and toned, I exercise every day for at least 45 mins. Still the same. The GP wouldn't even have a look! I've come to accept it but it's rubbish. I will be interestedly see if anyone else has good advice.

Just to clarify, that's normal exercise for 45 mins, not pelvic floor exercises Grin

Go back to your GP and tell him (I presume he was male) you want referring to Gynecologist asap and if he doesn't you will complain to the CCG and hold him legally liable for any further deterioration in your condition.

Prolapse can be treated easily (it sounds like that's what it is with RafikisStick too) and there are lots of options. If it is left untreated it will probably get worse and that can result in urinary or faecal incontinence.

I was a practice manager at a large medical centre and some of the GP's there were total misogynists about "women's problems" (as they called them and comments were always accompanied with eye rolls and deep sighs) and I would not have let them treat my pet rats let alone me.

There's a brilliant pelvic floor occupational therapist online ypu should look her up in Australia I think but has various advice about what is or isn't normal and when to seek help.
The functional pelvis. Defo worth a look
