Toothpaste: Toothpaste is used to fight decay causing bacteria in your mouth, there are so many approved and intended use for your vagina, talk to your gyn md.

No: Toothpaste is formulated to use in the oral cavity, and nowhere else. Think of it this way, would you use a vaginal cream in your mouth? Please speak to your GP or an OBGyn about proper vaginal hygiene.

Vaginal air bubbles: Sexual activity can sometimes cause air bubbles to collect in the vagina, which then are expelled during or after sex. It's not a problem and not unusual. Get your regular gyn checkup to be sure that is what it is.
