passing air vaginally

I was wondering if anyone who has had a baby has experienced this:  I am constantly passing air through my vagina.  It is really getting annoying considering how constant it is.  Sometimes I swear you can hear it.  I had stopped bleeding about 1 week post partum and was fine for about 4 days (still passing air though) and then I started bleeding again and still am.  I was just wondering about this air thing - what is it from?  Is it normal?  Thanks.  
Oh, my little girl was born may 5th 7lb 7 oz 19.5 inches.  She is such a joy!!!!

Congratulations, I wish I could help but I had a C-section. Maybe it's just left over air from your Uterus. I know I had a lot of trapped air that gave me huge jabs for a couple months after my dd was born. Good luck in the responses.

Congrats on your baby girl!  I have the same birthday!
I also had the 'passing air' after both of my vaginal deliveries....I also remember it to be quite annoying as well.  It does go away.  Like I forgot about it until I read your post.  Give it a few months, it won't happen anymore.

Yep I had it too, I think part of it was from being stretched out some too.  It will pass soon.

I had a c section 6 months ago and I too (still) am having gas passing through my vagina . Not too often ,but it really freaked me out. I heard on line it could be a tear somewhere in the vaginal wall ? Two gyn doctors had no answers for it except that it migh be air from the uterus. I m seeking more advise. Mabe it will go away on its own. No one else that I ve talked to heard of such a thing; until I crossed by this website.

i too am having the air coming out of my vagina after delivering my 2nd baby.  My gynac told it can only be a fistula and i went and did a test called barium enema where they try to find out the fistula.  Its a very uncomfortable test.  the test came negative..but that doesnt mean its not there.  It could even be a pin hole size the doctor said.  Im praying its not the case.  Its nice to read ur comments saying that it goes away.  i hope mine goes away too soon.  Im 2 months after delivering my baby

I just came across this website while researching...all along i was thinking, something must be wrong with me! these unpleasant sounds can't be normal.  Now i know i am not alone.  My only issue now is this, my last child is almost 9 mths. old and the problem still persist.  My first born is 2yrs 2mths and both kids were c-section.  Is there hope for me?  I noticed all the moms who had this experience said it will stop in a matter of few months, mine is over 9mths.
Help!
