I waited simply because my uterus was still contracting down, while that is happening you are more prone to infections. I wouldnt chance that. If you are that horny ...help yourself :-)
I had no desire to have sex right away so it was a moot point in our house (I think it was 3 months before we had sex post partum). My midwife never gave instructions on when it was okay. Even if there wasn't a risk of infection a doctor would never sign off because they don't see you in between baby being born and 6 week check so they would have no idea how healing is going. I'd say if you feel totally ready proceed cautiously and let DH know that you might have to stop during the deed.
my dr said it was fine as long as the bleeding had stopped and I didn't feel pain while doing it. I didn't tear at all tho.
I only waited 2 weeks.
