Embarssing question!

I am very embarrased to ask this question, but before I call my urogyn I would like some opinions on this. I had prolapse surgery in January...everything had fallen since my 2001 hysterectomy and everything was repaired in a 6 hr surgery. Before I had this surgery one of the symptoms I had was air escaping from my vagina...not during intercourse, but getting up off a chair at work, etc. Very embarrasing and very annoying. At that point, I could see and feel that things were protruding from my vagina. The last couple of weeks I have been having the air escaping from the vagina symptom, however there appears to be nothing protruding. I did call my gyn about it and she told me to call my urogyn who did the prolapse surgery. I am very upset that this symptom is happening again. Please help! Any articles or knowledge that anyone may have about this would be appreciated. I'm hesitating to call my urogyn until I know this is something to call about. I don't want to bother them if this is normal.

Hi Emma
It is best to call your uro/gyn. I know how you feel about bothering him, but this is what he gets paid for. To take care of you. I had rectocele and enterocele repair done in Jan. I have a weird sensation going on in my vagina again. My gyn who did the surgery referred me to a uro/gyn, I have a cystocele and possibly other things going on. I had urodynamic testing done and will have a cystoscopy next Wed. It is better to inquire about these sensations, so if anything is wrong it can be taken care of. I hope he doesn't find anything, but you know what you are experiencing is for real and you deserve to be taken care of.

I do agree that you should call your doctor and let him/her decide if this is normal. Here's a thread about this issue that has some links to some more threads:

Thank you for the threads, Kim. It makes me feel a little better to hear that this is not as abnormal as I thought. For some reason, I always thought this was normal after intercourse or during, but not on a regular basis. However, I will call my urogyn on Monday, since I have a very busy day at work tommorrow, and see what he thinks. It's so embarrassing to even have to ask, but I guess I'll try not to be so wimpy!

Again thanks!

I think we all identify with a feeling of intimidation or embarrassment when having to bring up these very personal issues. BUT, make the call.

As you know, unless your doctor is psychic .. I don't assume he'll call you and say "hey, Sherry, I was just wondering if you've had any air in your vagina lately?" OK, so I'm trying to make you laugh because I find laughter really healing.

Make that call, dear! You aren't a wimp ... none of us like these type of calls!

I made the call this morning and heard back quickly. My urogyn's nurse said it is probably nothing, but it wouldn't hurt for him to take a look. I have an appointment on Aug. 25. Thanks for all the encouragement!

I was embarrassed too when they happened thinking I too was the only one. I have two daughters. Once when it happened within ear shot of them they laughed and asked if that was a "queefer". I'd never heard a name for them. They had had them to. I thought it might be a family phenomena or something! Ha Ha. They are happening seldom since my hyster w/remaval of both ovaries and cervix. I am also having sex less.....maybe a corelation...Take care, and know you're not alone. Kathy

Everyone has had these, but you know I never did this until after my hyst and between the hyst and my prolapse surgery and since my prolapse surgery. If this ever happened to me it was during or right after intercourse, but never just in the normal course of the day! Gosh! And you said your daughters have had this happen? Wow! And here I thought it was so wierd! Now, I am wondering if I really should go to the urogyn about this!
