Brief Answer: Relaxed perineum, infection with gas forming organ Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. The possible causes for your problem are : - Gastritis, indigestion, relaxed perineum, improper closure of anal ring due to sentinel pile etc can lead to passage of flatus. In case of shorter perineum this can be interpreted as coming from vagina. -Infection of the vagina by gas forming organisms like clostridium etc. - Minute rectovaginal fistula leading to passage of flatus through vagina. So, once consult gynecologist and get examined. By examination the possibility of fistula can be ruled out. Vaginal swab culture and sensitivity may be needed to find out the possibility of vaginal infection and causative organism. Kegel's perineal exercises help in tightening the perineum and can treat the problem due to relaxed perineum. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
