Is it safe to have sex so early or he need to wait for some more days. After how many days after delivery should we resume to our sexual life?

It is said that the mother resumes her normal activity and her internal anatomic structure resume after 6 weeks of delivery, hence it is advised to resume the sex after 6 weeks post delivery. You might wish to see your Gynecologist now to check if you regained the energy. It is advised to use a condom or copper T to avoid pregnancy immediately after delivery. I hope this helps.
