post partumn sex

This is my second delivery, I didnt have any ripping or tearing, no stitches, just wondering how long people waited to have sex, bleeding is almost gone and I start birth control on Sunday. I planned on using protection, I waited 5 weeks after having my son and I had stitches with him. I know the dr says 6 weeks but it's been so long. I read people doing it right away or waiting a while, and I just wanna do it.
