With my first it was 6 weeks... about 4 with my second and over 6 with my 3rd. If you feel ready - go for it. I think you just have to be careful not to pull on your incision too much and if you have pain or extra bleeding... then stop!

Have fun!

Yeah, I wouldn't let him touch me until I went to get my IUD. LOL. (That was at 7 weeks)

I was too afraid after hearing all the "I knew someone who went for their (insert absurdly soon date) check up and was already PG!" : )

I've read that if the bleeding has stopped then your uterus is healed up so the risk of infection should be next to none. If you're still bleeding, I would only be slightly concerned but make sure you're both clean before having your fun. : )
