We've all talked about queefing among our girlfriends at some point, but what's really going on in your body? Queefing, also known as "vagina farts," is completely normal and it happens when trapped air gets pushed out of the vagina like a regular fart, reports Women's Health. It has folds called rugae that are like wrinkles.
THEY can cause serious embarrassment, but fanny farts shouldn't always be laughed off. Granted most episodes won't mean anything serious there are some instances when you might be wise to see your doctor. The embarrassing noise is simply the air being released from your vaginal canal, also known as "queefing". But since the farting sound isn't being caused by waste gases and doesn't smell, it is not actually a fart.
Yes, it's embarrassing, but it's nothing to be ashamed of. Not sure what a queef is? It goes by many names including vart and vaginal fart, but it most definitely is not the same thing as a fart.
It's embarrassing, but rest assured that you are not alone and it happens to many women during yoga. This inopportune body function is known as a "vart" short for vaginal fart and is so common that it's also called a "yoga fart. Vaginal farts are so frequent in yoga that it's really something to laugh about, which has led to all sorts of clever names.
I experienced some vaginal farts or "queefs" during gymnastics yesterday. It was very embarrassing and I can to go through that again. The clas is mainly boys.
Unlike the anus, the vagina does not have a sphincter to contract it and prevent the dreaded vent. There have been cases in young women but it is not the most usual. The weakness of the musculature can produce a constant contraction and expansion of the vaginal walls that produce these ventosities.
These names can be, and often are, very misleading. It is usually odorless because it is not a byproduct of waste in the body. It is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about and it does not imply any type of health concern.
Fanny farts, Varts, Queef, Daisy pumps, front botty-burps personal fav are all wonderful terms for one of the most embarrassing occurrences in a yoga class if you have a Vagina. All you can do is keep calm and carry on. I am sorry to inform you but if you have a lady garden then it can happen to you. Queefing is caused by a buildup of air in the vagina that has to be released.
