A queef, or vaginal flatulence it is an escape of air from the vagina chamber, although it is also known as a vaginal fart, it has nothing in common with a fart which is what happens when the air builds up from fermentation.

Queefing doesn’t have any health consequences, you should only feel worried if it has a strong smell or if you are pregnant because the air can get in the pelvic veins and create the risk of an air embolism, but the risk is minimum so if this happens to you the best you can do is to laugh it off and joke about it.

Why Do Girls Queef?

The vagina isn’t a straight tube, it has wrinkle-like folds so it is very prone to getting air caught inside.

When having sex the vagina is more prone to queefing because the air is actively being pushed into the vagina chamber, air can also get trapped with the movement (which is what happens when you queef during yoga or other types of exercises).

Another factor that makes you more prone to queefing is that your vagina expands when you are turned on, which makes more room for air.

If you just gave birth or lose weight then you have more chances of experiencing a queef because you have a lot of sagging tissue in the vagina.

Basically, when the air gets trapped it has to go out, and unfortunately, those moments that you are enjoying the most are the ones most prone to a queef.

What Causes Queefing?

Although we have already talked about the most common causes, we are going to tell you a few more and explain them to you.

  • Penetration: It doesn’t matter if it is with a penis, a sex toy or your fingers (yes, masturbation can also cause queefing), penetration pushes more air to the vagina chamber, and we add the fact that your vagina expands during sex (making more room for air) and its moistness which helps to make that “fart” sound then our chances of experiencing a queef go 10x times higher.
  • Changing sex positions: Certain positions make you more prone to queefing, especially the ones like the doggy style in which your hips are raised above your hair or the missionary but with your butt lifted off the bed. When you change positions the air can rush out.
  • Putting a tampon or a menstrual cup: When you do either other of those the air is pushed inside the vagina, and when you remove the tampon or the menstrual cup you can experience a queef.
  • Exercises: You are more prone to queefing when you practice yoga, especially on the position downward dog, or when you are doing crunches.
