Sometimes I feel like some air is being pushed into my vagina when I put in my cup, and it causes slight pressure (or is that what it's supposed to feel like when it suctions?). While reading online, I saw this (in regard to oral sex, but still!): "When air is blown into the vagina, it can travel up the vagina and enter the uterus through the cervix. Once it enters the uterus, it can travel into the fallopian tubes and into the abdominal cavity. The air can be absorbed into the circulatory system where it can cause a blockage in the blood flow. The blockage can be severe enough to cause death."

...am I going to die?!
