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.

To some extent: The vagina is very elastic and stretches easily to allow a blby to pass through. However, the fibroous supporting tissue is less elastic and will retain some degree of relaxtion, permamently, after a vaginal delivery. Kegel exercises can help to improve the tone of the pelvic floor muscles.

Is it normal to lose sensation in a leg after childbirth?

It happens...: In about 1 in 100 women, the baby's head compresses a nerve (often the sciatic) as it passes through the pelvic outlet. More likely in first pregnancies and prolonged 2nd stage of labor. Women with nerve injury spent more time pushing in the semi-fowler-lithotomy position than women without. Average duration of symptoms is usually ~2 months.

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.
