I used a bath tub water jet..forcing water into my vagina..now I have read an article and am worried sick about having a possible embolism...should I go to the emergency room?I did this about 7 hours ago...I feel a little bit of a burning sensation..but not horrible
How long would it take to know if you had this? Thank You,Taylor

Dr. Owen :

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.


 

Dr. Owen :

honestly you do not need to worry about an embolism -


 

Dr. Owen :

Because when we as ob/gyn's do surgery on the vagina and in the uterus, we are putting water under pressure into the uterus - and hence you will not cause an embollism this way, nor will you cause it with a jetted tub


 

Dr. Owen :

The burning sensation is not from the jetted tub.

Yes... thank you...So this was still probably a bad idea because it could cause uti?

well unlikely it will cause a UTI - but it could cause vaginal irritation
