Trapped air: After all, the vagina is a cavity in which air can get trapped, especially during intercourse. That air is sooner or later released.

There are rare occasions where a fistula (tunnel) connection can develop between the rectum or colon to the vagina (or bladder) allowing stool or feces to enter the vagina (or bladder) resulting in passage of stool or flatus/gas through the vagina (or the bladder if the fistula is to the bladder). This most commonly occurs with chronic inflammatory bowel disease known as Crohn's disease. See a dr.

A 16-year-old female asked:

When ever I do almost any form of movement I fart out of my vagina and It is really concerning me. Is this normal? is it something I concerning?

Normal: The vagina is a potential space that under certain conditions like exercise, strenuous movements etc., can "suck in " air and of course expel it at a later date. Women who have had several vaginal births have a greater propensity to vaginal "flatulence" due to greater distensibility of a previously "stretched" vagina. Have a GYN MD check the area and make sure that all is normal if it continues.
