At least two weeks: You could have sex when you feel ready, just remember that there is raw wound inside, and you will experience bleeding, if you have sex before the wound has healed properly. You may try after two weeks and if there is no bleeding you are okay. While inconvenient, waiting 6 weeks would be ideal.
