In brief: Weeks

After having a vaginal delivery it will take weeks before the cervix restitutes to it's normal size/shape.
By convention, most obstetricians tell their patients to refrain from any tub baths, intercourse or swimming for four to six weeks after delivering--all in order to avoid infection--for just this reason.
