    Sneezing and yawning can disrupt the flow of blood in the chest cavity as the lungs inflate close to its maximum capacity. This occurs in a split second and returns to normal instantly. Yawning however may be linked to a vasovagal reaction which can disrupt the heart activity. Both of these would explain a momentary disturbance in breathing and/or heart activity. However it should not cause severe or prolonged shortness of breath (dyspnes) unless there is a history of heart disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is unlikely that this is related to your vaginal symptoms. You should see your doctor just in case there is some serious underlying disorder which has not been diagnosed as yet.
