How long did you wait to have...sex after a D&C?

I hate to ask this question, but my doctor said pelvic rest for 6 weeks. He didn't give a reason and I wondered if it was normal or if it was really ok, he just doesn't want me prego again until after a period? I was 7 weeks and 3 days when the heart stopped beating. I had been bleeding on and off the whole pregnancy due to birth control pills that they put me on when I was only days pregnant. We had no way of knowing at that time that I was pregnant though, blood and urine tests said neg. The pills were to regulate me because I skipped a cycle.
Any advice would help. I'm thinking about calling my doctor to ask.

My dr. told me to wait one cycle but did say that if i didn't that the only reason they ask to wait is it will make it harder to determine how far along  i would be but with an ultrasound they would be able to figure it out. Hope that helps and good luck. Baby dust!!

After my D &C I waited 2 1/2 weeks just to let my body heel and get back to normal!

Well, I called my doctor's office and I am so glad to say that I was told after 2 weeks it should be ok. They don't usually say that because they have had some women come in days or a week later bleeding like a stuck pig due to being too rough too early. I was told to listen to my body, if it hurts don't do it, go slow and if I get pregnant then it is ok, but a due date will just be a little harder to determine. I only spotted 6 days after my D&C and have no spotting or anything now. Prayerfully we will have a watermelon seed that sticks this time   :)
Thanks to all for the answers and support!
