Dizziness, light headedness, nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing after childbirth. Related to having sex?

I just had a baby 3 months ago and I've been having dizziness and lightheaded, neausea sometimes with vomiting, trouble breathing and pains in my ribs when I breath sometimes, my first period was 6weeks postpartum and my 2nd was over a week late both were very light and short kind of just spotting which is not usual for me and I started having sex again at 2 weeks postpartum. Can all this be related if not what could it be? Thanks

First of all, you need a thorough physical examination to find out why you have these symptoms. It may be a chest infection or something more. You also need a blood count to rule out anemia.
I dont think this is due to sex but neverthless, you will a complete evaluation asap.
Even though its rare, we have to exclude a pregnancy also.
