Risks and how to avoid them
You perform vaginal insufflations by infusing an ozone/oxygen gas mix into the female reproductive system with the help of a catheter. They are best performed in a continuous fashion: one attaches a catheter to the ozone output hose and allows for the ozone/oxygen gas mix to flow in for the desired amount of time.
In order to do VIs you need:
oxygen + ozone generator + catheter
Oxygen source: Either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator can be used. Both the oxygen concentrator and oxygen tank have to allow for low oxygen flows. A maximum flow of 1/8 LPM is recommended. (1/32 is less than 1/16, which in turn is less than 1/8 LPM).
Oxygen concentrator: there are several possibilities. One can either use a low flow oxygen concentrator which allows for oxygen flows of maximum 1/8 LPM or one can use a regular oxygen concentrator (which usually allows for oxygen flows of 0.5 to 5 LPM) and attach an external low flow regulator.
Ozone generator: It should be a generator which uses ozone resistant materials in the air chamber, can be fed oxygen from an oxygen concentrator or an oxygen tank, can reliably produce stable ozone concentrations at given oxygen flows, and does not exceed ozone concentrations of 80 ug/ml. For direct rectal insufflations it should be able to generate ozone concentrations between 20 and 40 ug/ml (gamma) at oxygen flows of 1/32 to 1/8 LPM.
Accessories: Catheters: most are made of PVC, some use silicone. Instead of a catheter you can also use a bag or a syringe. Or use SimplyO3’s kit for vaginal insufflations, see below.
For those who prefer to do VI indirectly: use Promolife’s new 200 ml polycarbonate syringe. Fill it with the ozone/oxygen gas, attach it to the inserted catheter, and insert the gas by pressing on the plunger. Make sure you also get an adapter if you opt for slip-on catheters. If you decide to go with luer lock catheters, get some spare luer locks as well.
The “standard” PVC catheter which can be used for vaginal (or rectal) insufflations, also from Promolife.
For an overview of the different connectors and tubing, please go to How to connect ozone equipment.
Connect the oxygen source (either tank or concentrator) with the ozone generator inlet via tubing. Attach silicone tubing to the ozone generator “ozone out” outlet. Insert a catheter into the vagina until you feel resistance or around 2 inches deep (6 to 8 cm). Turn on the oxygen and set it at the given oxygen flow. Connect the “ozone out” silicone tubing with the catheter. Turn on the ozone generator and set it on the desired ozone concentration. Place a towel on your lap which will absorb the excess ozone. Additionally, either wear a mask or put a fan in front of you. Open a window and make sure there is enough ventilation in the room.
- Gas embolism (I personally think that risk is vanishingly small. I could only find one case where it was suspected that a woman died due to a gas embolism after a certain sexual practice which according to the coroner had pushed air through an open vein in her uterus and caused an air embolism. As far as I know, there is no reported case where this has ever occurred during vaginal ozone insufflations. Still, Dr. Rowen prefers to make people aware of it.)
- Itchy rash and burning sensation
- If you suspect having a tear or a wound due to trauma or other causes in your reproductive system, do not attempt vaginal insufflations. Otherwise you’re running a risk of pushing air into an open vein which could cause a gas embolism.

See, this will never happen here. I write waaay too slow to create spam. Just check out my blog. Even if I wanted to, I'm unable.
