I am 20. For the last four years, I have been having a problem with my private parts. I feel like air is entering my vagina whenever I bend doing work like mopping the floor. Later, that air comes out making a sound like I have farted. It does not smell, but it is embarrassing. Some people have told

Some people have told me it normally happens to women after giving birth, but I have never even had sex. Please help.

Lydia,
This is a common thing. When in certain positions, air can enter a woman’s vagina. When you change this position, the air comes out with a sound. It does not smell.
This is called fanny farting. It may happen when a couple is having sex, especially in some positions.

Some notice it more often after child birth. It is embarrassing when it occurs, but it is natural and normal. Do not worry that you have a problem with your privates, because most likely, you don’t. Talk to a nurse or midwife or a doctor for more reassurance.

How can I treat fungal infection?
Please tell me about fungal infections, the treatment and diet one should be on. I have been on treatment for two months, but there is no change.

Kate,
Fungi are germs which infect us.
You see them as rashes on the skin; usually patches of rough skin, commonly called ringworm. They may make the skin darker or lighter. They may be itching or not. They are usually treated with creams, or tablets. One should continue using them until the rash disappears, and for two more weeks, so that they don’t come back.

Candida is also a fungus. It mainly affects women, causing a thick, white, ‘bad-milk’ like and itchy discharge from the vagina. This discharge may come and go, or may be associated with the periods, pregnancy, taking too many antibiotics and other things. Kate, fungal infections is a broad term. A doctor needs to know exactly what you are suffering from and then recommend treatment.

Please see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. The doctor should tell you when to come back if the treatment does not work.
