A lovely Dear Dangler recently sent me this query, and I wanted to throw this out to you, Hive Mind.
Queef: noun: an expulsion of air through the vagina.
“I am stressed and embarrassed about doing straddle inverts, as well as other general invert moves.
The problem is that with the damage from my pregnancy when I invert my organs move down towards my head causing a vacuum and sucking in air, caused the dreaded queef.
I love silks, it is my joy at the moment but I was so mortified the first time it happened. I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but I am constantly stressed about it.
Do you have any recommendations to help solve the problem???”
Pre-pregnancy, when I would base trapeze, sometimes this would happen to me (we called me “Queen La-Queefia, and joked that I could propel our roll-around-the-bars with the force of them). It tended to happen when we were returning to trapeze after a short hiatus, so I suspect I was allowing my pelvic floor muscles to to relax a bit.
Does anyone have any words of wisdom for this quizzical queefer? It’s awful when something like this stands in the way of something you love. OK, Hive Mind! GO!!!! If you have any thoughts or recommendations, please leave them in the comments below! Love and pull-ups, Laura
