Definition: A blood clot or thrombus is the final step of the coagulation cascade. It is a good thing when your body is trying to stop blood loss, however a blood clot can form in the veins after prolonged periods of immobility. This type of like that would require treatment.

Unlikely: It is unlikely, a significant amount of air could enter the venous system and caused a clinically significant event.

Rare: What type of embolism are you concerned about? It is exceedingly rare. There have been some very very scattered reports of air embolism after oral intercourse, again this could be discussed with your primary care doctor if you have further questions.
