I'm 4.5 wk postpartum and have vaginal flatulence. I had sex two days ago, is this a sign of air embolism or normal?

In brief: Normal

the vagina is not back to its normal size and more air can remain in the vagina during intercourse causing the problem It will resolve itself

In brief: Unlikely

An air embolism occurs when air enters your circulatory system (artery or vein).
This would not cause vaginal flatulence.
