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

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.

It's like North Carolina and South Carolina... different places. ...Read more

Should I be worried about air embolism? Had sex on period and air was pushed into vagina through normal intercourse. Never seemed to come out.
No worries: "Air embolism" refers to air getting into the bloodstream. Pushing air into the vagina during intercourse will not push air into the circulatory system so that's all good. And I guarantee that the air that pushed in as a matter of fact came out. You simply didn't notice that detail because you were busy with other things at the time. Cheers! ...Read more
