I have heard this is common with sexual intercourse, but I am having this almost every time I sit and stand back up. It's so embarrassing! Please help! Is there anything I can do, and why is this happening?
It is my understanding that vaginal flatulence occurs when a vacuum of air created inside the vagina and then gets released.
I couldn't find much of any information about what to do about it. In addition to intercourse, it appears that a number of women have this problem while doing yoga. Some suggested that doing kegel exercises can help you control when/how you release the air. Some women said they wear tampons to yoga class, but that wouldn't be advisable for all day use!

Hi - please can you tell me what your doctor said as I am reluctant to go.
This has escalated very quickly over the last month and I now have to clench before leaving my chair
I am mortified by it and scared that somebody will notice
Is there a medicine which solves it
