Is it safe to have sex a short time after Mirena was inserted!?

Hey everyone, I just have a quick question! I had sex this morning, August 28, 2016, unprotected, I have only had my Mirena in since Aug. 19, 2016! Which would be about a week and a half, Should I be okay? Should I have any worries on being pregnant? I just had my son in April 2016!

When I first had my Mirena IUD placed, I was told by my Gynecologist that I can have sex the same day it was placed. I was in too much pain for a couple of days, but continued my sex life with my partner after stubbornly waiting for a week. I haven't became pregnant on the Mirena, and it has been 5 years. We have always been quite sexually active and the Mirena works well for us. I had my second Mirena placed not too long ago. Since you can have sex the same day as the placement, then a week/week & 1/2 is absolutely a safe amount of time.

Surely the doctor told you if you should wait. Why not Google it to find out?
