as there is chance of heavy bleeding in case of low lying placenta that too extended up to the os, better to refrain from intercourse,
though sometimes the placenta can migrate upwards with progression of gestational age, that may not be much ahead of os within 3 more weeks,
so better to be careful.
take care.
