Is it normal to queef?


“Queef” is a slang term for vaginal flatulence, which occurs when air gets into the body during arousal, penetration, or even exercise. As the air leaves the body, it can make an embarrassing sound.  However, this is a normal experience common to anyone with a vagina!

During sex, the vaginal canal lengthens and the uterus moves.  This can create extra space for air to collect. Often, people experience vaginal flatulence when the walls of the canal return to their unaroused state. However, it is also possible to experience flatulence from particular exercise positions, as in yoga.
