Sorry but I had to ask

A woman is suppose to wipe from front to back (instead of back to front) to avoid bacterial infections because the dirtiness from the anus goes to the vagina and causes the infection. But what happens when she queefs (farts and it goes through to the vagina), does that cause a bacterial infection also??

Sorry, just wondering.

  • no, it's just air caught in the vaginal canal coming out

  • a queef is just trapped air being released. Like when you queef during sex its because the penis is pushing air into the vagina. Its nothing to do with gas buildup like a regular fart.

  • Haha no, if someone "queefs", it's just air that's trapped in the vagina, often from sex or douching, etc. It doesn't come from another part of the body so there's no bacteria brought with it.

  • No but if you're sitting just right and fart and the air goes that way you could I suppose. LMAO!! That would suck!

  • A queef was never a fart to begin with. It doesn't come from your anus. It's caused by air being pushed into the vagina, which is then released.

  • Yeah, I don't think a queef is going to hurt anything...
