I told him and he is sorry and will try not to do it but just in case any suggestions? Anyone else had this problem?

I think you need to tell your husband to be a bit more gentle. Apart from the air it sounds like he is being too rough and that is probably hurting you more. My wife often gets air inside her in this position and a vagina pumped up with air is not a lot of fun for either partner. Try different positions as suggested, especially with the pillow. But most of all don't be shy to say something just because he's having a good time. Sex is for sharing so please make sure it stays like that.

I tried all of these methods but when this happens to me, for some thing the only thing that relieves the pain is a hot bath. I have no idea why, but if you're like me and the other tricks aren't working, give it a go.

A female reader, MarnieW United Kingdom +, writes (11 May 2011):

I have had this problem as far back as I can recall. When we have sex, part of the pleasure is caused the sensation which in turn comes from the vacuum created during the act. if your partner pulls out intentionally or otherwise a large amount if air can get sucked into an already swollen vagina. my partner and I laugh about it and when he is conscious of it happening withdraws slowly and allows me to bear down so the air can escape. Once when I got carried away and didn't bother to break during sex, the intense pain I felt made me vow 'never again'. My partner also thinks it may have something to do with slightly tighter vaginal muscles than average which I take as a compliment. I tell him that it's my way of getting a grip on him during sex, does his ego the world of good. I don't worry, the more air I expel, the more a good job he feels he has done. Mx

This happened to me two days ago.

And I am still in incredibly bad pain.

Did it feel like a really shocking pain when he entered?

I'm hoping that we have had the same problems becomes I was really rather worried.

It felt like a ripping pain at first, but I experienced no blood.

My boyfriend said that it was possibly really bad trapped air.

This pain also occured during doggy style.

Do you think I may have experienced the same thing, and will it go away soon?

It's funny that I am reading this question. I had a total hysterectomy in March of this year. Had a very difficult recovery; no specific problem that could be found, just didn't recover as quickly from the pain. In May of this year, my husband and I were having sex doggy style. Immediately when it was over, I experienced the worst stomach pain I have every had. (No pain during.) It didn't go away. I was taken to the ER and spent a holiday weekend inpatient hooked up to a morhpine pump. I have been through two OB/GYNE/s, one primary care physician and two gastroenterologists. I am presently seeing a gastro at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO. A CT scan showed trapped air in the abdomen. I have had an Endoscopy, ultrasound, colonoscopoy, gastroesophageal motility and Ph testing. If I am ever diagnosed with someone that can be fixed, I will log into this site and let you know. If you happen to see a physician who has an insight, please share! Thanks.

I really don't want to be rude, but I can't help but note that you are having a painful sexual experience, and it appears that your man isn't being respectful to your needs.

" It seems like this usually happens when he gets really excited and gets carried away and hits it really hard (if you know what I mean) it hurts so bad it drops me to my stomach,"

This is just sad. I was reading this with my boyfriend.... he and I both could never imagine a love making moment where he felt the need to get so carried away that he wasn't aware of how I felt. Whats the point of being sexual with him if he can't be in control enough to care if you are in pain? If something causes pain to myself or my lover, we just don't do it. I really hope I'm wrong and it just sounded that way in type. I also hope things are going better in bed for you!

Ladies, I am so sorry that you are experiencing pain from that position when the air gets in. I have never experienced pain, I actually like it. It makes me laugh sometimes to hear it. I don't know where the pain is coming from, but I have a suggestion......Do the Kegel exercises as much as possible. I do them all of the time and it makes your walls extremely strong and able to handle any "issues" that come about. Good luck ladies......

I have experienced it also. More with larger guys than average. However definitely with both. And yes it hurt so bad sometimes. This time the gas left pain in my anal area even when passed. It can also interrupt during making certain positions painful. What are we supposed to do? Take fart breaks?

A female reader, anonymous, writes (12 November 2008):

This used to happen to me all the time. It happens when he pulls his penis out of you and while pushing it back in, air goes along with it. It especially happens during really rough sex. It's just hair. It won't harm you.

Just lean forward and bear down like you are going to have a bowel movement and the air will come out. It's certainly not the sexiest of situations but it happens to plenty of women. :)

A female reader, anonymous, writes (4 November 2008):

I found a way to get rid of the pesky trapped air in the vagina by mistake. So, I was drawing while on my bed one day and my pencil fell to the floor. I was too lazy to get off my bed and get it so I decided to reach down from my bed. My knees were kneel on the edge of the bed and my hand on the floor. All of a sudden a gust of air left my vagina! It shocked me so bad that I stayed in the position, for 15 mins pushing air in and out of my vagina, to further examine what was going on. I discovered that I could get rid of that air by simply elevating my lower abdomen while my upper body remains low. Spreading your legs while doing this is relevant. Yet, be sure to push out the air then immediately stand up. This way air won't get sucked back in. So now, when I have this "coochie fart" problem during sex I assume this position. Then I can continue to enjoy beautiful connection with my lover. It works every time.

A reader, anonymous, writes (22 October 2008):

This is just a suggestion, but instead of doing you doggy style, you could try waht I think is called "leapfrog". My bf really likes it, its where you put a pillow under your pelvis and lie on your front. Then spread your legs, and he enters you from behind/on top. I find it more comfortable as my arms get tired during doggy style, and I find it a lot less jarring when he penetrates. Maybe this would help absorb some of the impact, and help you not bruise so much. Just something i thought of! :)

Well, thanks everyone, lots of things I didn't think of or try doing. Maybe he is bruising me too - cause doggy style is my least favorite position but he likes it, we don't do it this way very often and I now remember why. Air does come out and does that farting noise, every time we do it doggy style and his penis comes out and goes back in again. It seems like this usually happens when he gets really excited and gets carried away and hits it really hard (if you know what I mean) it hurts so bad it drops me to my stomach, it feels like he took a giant air pump and rapidly pumped me full of air. I will try every suggestion the next time this happens - hopefully one works and this doesn't happen anymore! I am glad that someone has experienced this before, makes me feel MUCH better! Keep the answers and suggestions coming!

Hey honey,

Does the air come out wiht a farting noise? If not, then its probably not air, but his actual penis bruising your vagina thats causing the pain. Maybe he could try to be more gentle when doing you doggy style, or you could use different positions. Pain isnt good, well at least when you dont knwo what causes it, its your bodys way of telling you something is wrong.

So maybe a visit to the doctor would be good? If not, try other positions, and being more gentle and see if that helps!

A male reader, Sandman United States +, writes (21 October 2008):

Sandman agony auntHmmm...

I've had this happen with my wife (now ex wife) sometimes. I don't remember it being with any particular position, it just happened from time to time. What I do remember is her vagina releasing the air either when I thrusted into her (if there was a lot of air, it would be with every thrust for quite a while) or when I pulled out (releasing a lot of air). Pulling out (for us) always seemed effective for very excessive buildup of air as my penis acted as some type of plug and once removed, so did the air. So I'm not sure why you are not experiencing the same. I don't understand why the air won't escape once he pulls out. But anyway...

I don't know of anything that will prevent it, but here are some tips.

If you know for sure it only happens during doggy style, try switching positions for a while. This will allow the air to escape while changing positions AND will allow for the air not to build up from being in that position. Also, you might try tightening your vaginal muscles while in the doggy position. It seems logical to me that tightening the vaginal muscles during this position will effectively decrease the amount of free space between the penis and vagina and possibly not allow for the air buildup.

If that fails, then as a last resort you can incorporate some type of activity that allows for you and your husband to manually remove the air from your vagina so be able to keep going. This can be cuddling for a few minutes while gently pressing down on your abdomen (stomach) to push the air out.

Hope this helps.

VictoriaK agony auntFirst, make sure that when you are having sex that your back is as arched as possible, this will allow the air to rise to the "surface" otherwise known as a "queef" Another thing you can do is tell him not to pull out while having sex, this will push more air in, if he stays inside the entire time, it will reduce the space for the air to come in. I used to have this problem also, I remember it was VERY painful. Another thing that it could possibly be is that your Vaginal walls and cervix are sensitive, or you have a gastrointestinal problem. You can check on that with you doctor. But, if it hurts this much, then dont do it. Most of the time when you have pain it's your body telling you that something is wrong with what you're doing, or what you're NOT doing. Keep us posted, and you can message me anytime. Best of Luck.

Victoria~
