No you should wait the 6 weeks as advised so you're not risking infection.

you should wait til 6 weeks but its up to you. if you feel comfortable and arent in pain, as well as if you feel safe about risking infection then go for it... but nobody is stopping you of plenty of people have done it before they are told to

They recommend 6 weeks because of infection and all that. After I had my first baby, my OB said that as long as I wasn't bleeding anymore, felt up to it and USED PROTECTION to go for it whenever I was ready. So we ended up not waiting the whole 6 weeks after any of our kids.

I waited 4 weeks. Just make sure you use a condom and go slow.

I had sex with my SO the day before I was 3 weeks pp. BUT I had a c section so I didn't have stitches or anything. I'm perfectly fine I'll be 4 weeks this Thursday.
