  • Yes it’s possible for air to go up. This happens to me sometimes when me and my husband have sex. It’s uncomfortable and hurts if I don’t push the air out. Yes it sounds like a queef lol but that’s the only way it won’t hurt anymore.

  • The older doctor was trying to he funny, but came across like a douche.Seemed disrespectful to her commentary like it was a debate and they kept cutting her off, wtf!!???

  • why do they keep interrupting her? she’s say really interesting stuff and they’re just raising their eyebrows at her and butting in.

  • I know that when that happened to me and I started to feel cramps my body was pushing my boyfriend out bc it hurt so so bad and I had never felt that type of pain before to the point that me and my boyfriend had to stop and about 2 or 3 weeks later I had found out that I was pregnant. Thar is one of the early signs that alot of women don’t know about and I didn’t know this was an early sign of pregnancy until it happen to me

  • my days… i have had the gas pain which actually made me throw up, the pain was sooo damn intense even shooting pains came with it �������� gas is no damn joke!

  • The only time I’ve ever had air escape (which let me know air had snuck up there in the first place) was with an ex of mine and he was…smaller than my previous but it still wasn’t bad but I think he wanted to do. dare I say, alot of big dick positions…and yeah, I try to forget that one night we were in the middle of it and ALL OF A SUDDEN I heard the loudest longest queef of my LIFE and if I was dying on the inside, soon as I saw his face I could just tell his ass was embarrassed. Now it was never painful during intercourse so that woman may need an ultrasound to figure out what’s wrong with HER but I definitely know that yes, this female Dr is spot on how air can travel up during intercourse and it was really pissing me off that how they not only kept interrupting her but also undermining her every time she spoke. But yeah, needless to say, ol dude felt kinda ashamed about his package deal lol

  • Could be coarse or dry penis skin too. I had this for a long time and it irritated the inside of my wife’s vagina. Now I use one of those penis skin moisturizers (Man1 Man Oil) and my skin stays smooth and soft. Our sex life is a lot better because of it. Keep this in mind, ladies and gents.

  • THANK YOU! im open I know nick I can trust you…I had a partner we would have sex sometimes it was difficult I couldn’t relax and he would say use lube or spit in your hand to make it go in easyr even forcing it in. we didn’t cominuicate well trying to make it happen.

  • I’ve been to the ER 4 times in the last month from pelvic pain during intercourse and this last visit they did an ultrasound and found that everything looked normal. My primary doctor is only doing video chat calls and I can’t see a OBGYN because of COVID and don’t know what I should do. This pain began 3 months ago and was very sudden. From one day to the next the pain started during intercourse and has been intense pain. Should I get a second opinion? A vaginal ultrasound? Can this pain effect me negatively in the long run? I need help and no one will!:(

  • +thedoctorstv Thanks for a vid on a female-exclusive gas problem. The ovaries and Fallopian tubes are gapped much like a scale-up of synapses in the nervous system, which explains the occasional pressurized peritoneum.

  • First I’d like to agree with most of the previous comments the guys were a quite rude by not allowing her to finish speaking and/or interrupting her! Not nice,guys!!
    Now on the topic of “gas” during sex. I’ve been married for 50 years and during those MANY years the “gas” problem has happened quite a few times. However, the “gas” I experienced was only a small amount (each time) and it was ‘expelled’ right after hubby had “pulled-out” all the gas came out immediately after he did. The very first time it happened we both giggled a little because it DID sound a little like a tiny “lady fart” (?) Lol

  • I get exactly what she is talking about. Just bend over and spread em, suck in your lower stomach and push that air out. ������girl struggles.

  • The fallopian tubes are not actually attached to the ovaries hair like follicles grab the egg is it comes out and pushes it down the fallopian tube it’s a fallopian tubes are nowhere near the ovary the egg actually just goes out in to nowhere also explains some babies and the placenta develop outside the uterus

  • I have not had sex in forever…. and im in a complicated relationship with the very same person i had sex with previously. soo idk whats going on there… he refuses because he thinks its incest lol but its not because we not related.. just because we have same ancestors/culture/nationality/.. does not make us related and is not incest also… i do want to have sex. the closest is sleeping next to him. smh

  • I really wanted her to speak more. Very dissapointing to see Dr. With such rude manners when they should know better. Could at least have respect and let her finish

  • Am so happy watching dis video, cos am facing de same problem i cnt enjoy myself having sex at all. i feel so much pain. can Doctor please tell me Wht to do?

  • What about the size of the guy’s penis? I never used to get a cramping feeling in my abdomen with my ex who was a bit under average, but with my new partner I do and he’s a bit over average. I wonder if size plays a part in the abdominal discomfort..

  • In conclusion: No matter how old or educated a male is, the one thing he can’t shake off is the immaturity & fascination with the VAGINA. Sing it a thousand times a day guys! You will not feel the pain of hearing “it” anymore. )I( Eventually.

  • Nick you were cradling the pelvis for a little bit lol It was a good episode. I have a feeling that the topic of birth control will eventually make its way.

  • i have nothing against male doctors but i find it so rude how these male doctors are totally disregarding what she is saying, like they have vaginas lol not to say you got to have one to know about this topic gas but why question her as though she is not as competent.

  • OH MY GOSH! I JUST LEARNED MY ISSUE!!!! I know that this is my issue because the pain the doctor describe and the feeling are to a tee! ��

  • Feeling painful in sexual intercourse is known as vaginismus in medical term. This is due to when something is entering the vagina of the female the muscles contract and the vagina is blocked. Therefore she feels very painful when this condition happens. Due to this pain, some women refuse sexual intercourse. Some are having shame to discuss this and due to the shame, they don’t go to take medical advice.

  • Uhm for starters these two make idiots would have done gynea/obs during their medical round training so why they both keep interrupting and sounding so stupid makes me want to slap them out…. sheeeesh

  • Those guys are so insensitive! Especially that old guy. What’s wrong with some people, they cannot distinguish between a genuine serious issue and a joke? I wonder what makes people take anything related to sex as a joke!? (with the exception of their girl cheating on them, i suppose).
    Anyway, gas in the abdomen feels very different, so when a girl says gas pain, it’s very different from the gas pain guys experience because gas goes to the uterus and that is extremely painful. It happens to me every period, so I understand what pain she is talking about.

  • Well mostly when in doggy style it hurts so he has to take it out and reinsert it bc I keep saying he’s sitting something and it hurts. What’s he hitting that hurts?

  • hay mam.. i suffering this case(painfull) last one month in my wife.. which doctor can we consult..?

    gynaecology.. serology.. physician.?

    plz hlp..

  • Mate, they are just completely dismissing the diagnosis??? The point here is that it’s unusual and not the normal hence why the diagnosis is unusual.

  • That old guy is an arrogant bastard for questioning & trying to devalue her expertise, not only as an educated OBGYN, but also as a women with a vagina who knows her stuff.

  • I think the lady had gas in her stomach before sex….not from sex, a man’s penis isn’t a air pump…maybe the meal she eat before sex…lol

  • As a woman I can relate. What she said makes sense. I personally feel like it is important to stop your partner and expel the air. Otherwise it’s uncomfortable and you can spend the whole time waiting for the activity to end….:-(

  • that old doctor really bunked a lotta anat classes to not know that the female genital tract connects the external environment to the peritoneal cavity, thus explaining the risk of PIDs in women.

  • Can painful sex be because of 13mm polyp in womb? Or sciatica I had 6 months ago? All my appointments are cancelled because of Convid-19 pandemic. I’m frustrated.
