Do I need to wait for dr?


I’m 4 weeks postpartum and so ready to be intimate with my husband again! I had a good delivery, I had a small tear and have 1 inner stitch and 1 outer. I know everywhere says wait 4-6 weeks for sex and until ur dr appt so dr can give you the green light.

Butttttt.... my appt isn’t for another 2 weeks!!!! Do I really need to wait? Is there a way I can check myself and see if I’m healed and good to go?
