I know 6 weeks is a while but you should wait. You might feel better and prepared to do so, but 6 wks its best to make sure you are completely ready, its a good time frame, only 3 more weeks hang in there! I agree, there are other ways to be intimate

It's best not to because your body has gone through a lot of trauma, especially being cut and stitched. You are also prone to infection if you aren't healed completely.
There are other ways to be intimate with each other besides sex. It's a good way to reconnect as a couple.
