No, you don't have to wait the 6 weeks. I know many people that had sex as soon as 2 weeks after. If you had a C-section, I would wait until your postpartum checkup and only because that is major surgery. Be aware that you are very fertile that soon after having a baby because your hormones aren't back to normal. If you feel up to sex, then go for it.
