You risk getting pregnant again. That's about it. I had sex 2 weeks after my c section. Or maybe a little sooner. Just tell your doctor the truth at your 3 week check up when she asks because she us only asking because you have to take a pregnancy test again before she will give you any type of birth control. But if you hadn't had sex, she wouldn't have to do a pregnancy test. That's all.

Your body has to heal. That's the first reason. Second is if you become pregnant again (which can and has happened. ..I have a friend pregnant right now due to not waiting) you are going to risk the Chance of rupturing your uterus which could kill you and the baby. They slit open your uterus and it needs time to heal. They close it with glue. THEN they staple outside and that's the part you see.
