Condoms: While not 100% effective, condoms reduce the risk. The pelvic dam, a rarely used artificial barrier, is even more effective.

Treat at same time : Treat infections simultaneously. Use condoms. Have regular check ups with gyn.

Probably not...: Probably not, your vagina will change from before you had children...But chances are it will not stay the same as when you were pregnant and delivering the baby. Generally speaking for most women, you will get close to normal about 6 weeks after a vaginal delivery.

Yes: Usually women have to clench their legs very tightly around the penis while they are lying down. Most women do not experience orgasms in the tradional missionary position or with vaginal intercourse. The clitoris needs to be stimulated while the legs are tightly clenched as this increases the tone of the muscles around the clitoris.

Vaginal air bubbles: Sexual activity can sometimes cause air bubbles to collect in the vagina, which then are expelled during or after sex. It's not a problem and not unusual. Get your regular gyn checkup to be sure that is what it is.

Genital sores + redness = normal after the first time?

Not likely: Redness and perhaps very brief soreness maybe, but anything lasting more than a day or so would make me worry about a sexually transmitted disease.
