Forcing or blowing air into the vagina could cause an air embolism (a bubble of air that gets into your blood circulation). This rarely happens, but it can be life-threatening for you or the baby.

If you're not sure what your partner's HIV status is, use a dental dam (a sheet of latex that you place between your genitals and your partner's mouth). There's some evidence suggesting that a person may be able to transmit HIV through microabrasions or tiny cuts in his mouth ...Read more
