In brief: Hernia

Yes but any strenuous activity can make your hernia larger or bulge out.
Ultimately, you will likely need to have your hernia fixed.

In brief: Yes

Sexual activity should not be affected, but if it does happen to cause pain or discomfort, ease up.
See a general surgeon for an exam and more info regarding your case.
