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.
Here is what you need in order to perform VI directly from the ozone generator in a continuous fashion. Which in my opinion is the best way to do it.
1. Oxygen source (tank or concentrator) including low flow regulator
2. Ozone generator
3. Extra silicone tubing, connector, catheter
[3a. OPTIONAL: humidifier and trap]
5. Extras: at least two old or white towels, some plastic cover, a good book
In the picture above you see the most basic setup for vaginal insufflations: an oxygen tank (although I prefer using an oxygen concentrator and an external low flow regulator), the Promolife Dual Cell O3Elite, some extra silicone tubing, a special connector and a catheter.
1. Oxygen source: Either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator can be used which produces oxygen of at least 90% purity. Whatever oxygen source you choose, make sure your ozone generator is able to produce concentrations between 20 and 50 mcg/ml at the given oxygen flow. Consult the chart of your ozone generator to find out whether you will be able to produce those concentrations.
2. Ozone generator: It should be an oxygen fed generator which can produce ozone concentrations of at least up to 50 mcg/ml. Any of the recommended generators on this page will do the job. The one in the pictures above is the EliteO3 Dual Cell from Promolife.
3. Extra silicone tubing, connector, and a catheter: Those are all the accessories you need to perform vaginal insufflations. For the silicone tubing you will need a luer lock connector to be able to connect it to the ozone output. The connector which helps connect the catheter with the silicone tubing will also fit the silicone catheters. Both the PVC and the silicone catheters can be reused. You just need to rinse them out after each usage.
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.
