Causes Of Air Embolism
Masturbation: Probably not. Unless you are using the shower head from seinfeld. When kramer bought that powerful one off the back of a truck! ...Read more
Blood vessels are made to carry blood - liquid. A small amount of air in a vessel is not usually a big deal as it will be absorbed into the blood. Larger volumes of air (10 mL or larger) can be significant to block blood flow in that vessel. That is bad in the brain (stroke) and really bad in the heart because ...Read more
I slept with a fan on all night but just had knickers on could the fan have cause a air embolism in my vagina? The fan was at the end of the bed
No: A room fan, anywhere in the room, is fine and will not cause a vaginal air embolism. Keeping cool with a fan is a good thing, as it decreases sweatiness and body odors. Air embolism is a risk if a person's mouth and lips seals off another person's vulvo-vaginal opening, and then he blows... that would be a bad thing to do. ...Read more
Why is blowing into the vagina considered dangerous but air trapped during sex is supposedly harmless? Why does one cause an air embolism and the other does not?

Possibly: Douching during pregnancy can cause an air embolism. I wasn't able to find reference to douching with a shower head in a non-pregnant state.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant & I have been blow drying my vagina after I shower. Can that cause an air embolism?
Not the vagina!: If a woman is blow-drying her vagina, either she is doing something bad (vaginas must stay moist forever) or she is calling something a vagina when in fact it is not her vagina. What that means is nobody blows dry her vagina. On the other hand, blow-drying pubic hair and the outer labia is ok to do. That's her vulva, not her vagina. It's like North Carolina and South Carolina... different places. ...Read more
