No: Tooth paste have different detergents and antibacterial ingredients specifically tailored to control harmful bacteria of the mouth. The vaginal tract has its specific bacterial flora which protects the vagina. Tooth paste may destroy this balance, and you may end up with an infection of an opportunistic bacteria.

Yes: It is safe your your husband to breathe near your vagina. You should avoid forcing air or breath into your vagina at any time, however. There has been a reported case of complications during pregnancy due to this although it is incredibly rare.

Tube to the uterus: The vagina is tube that connects the vulva (the outer part of the female genitals) to the uterus, or womb. It is between the urethra (where urine comes out) and the anus (where bowel movements come out). When someone talks about a woman having sex, they are often referring to penetration (with a penis, finger, or sex toy) of the vagina.

Follow the direction: With the med , it should tell you how far to insert the applicator, needs to get far enough up to stay in but you do not want to go too far or you can hurt yourself.

Save it for ur teeth: I am unaware of any reason one might want to use toothpaste in that region of the body, but the abrasive nature of the toothpaste and other ingredients may irritate those tissues substantially. For whatever your reasoning, use a product formulated for that reason.
