I have been having symptoms of bv or a yeast infection so I tried the method of a hydrogen peroxide douche. Could I get an air embolism from this?

I have been having symptoms of bv or a yeast infection so I tried the method of a hydrogen peroxide douche. Could I get an air embolism from this?

No air embolism, but: ...something doesn't compute. BV and yeast cause quite different symptoms; they are rarely confused with one another.
