In brief: Don't do it

If you had unprotected sex and you are bottle feeding this early you may be pregnant by 6 weeks out.
After delivery you may ovulate at least twice before 6 weeks out. In addition the reason we ask you to abstain for 5-6 weeks is that you are at risk from infection. Sex definitely if done too early can result in serious uterine infection. And it takes 6 weeks tubal ligation to be 100% effective.
