In 2 weeks I can have sex but don't want him to touch me. Could it have anything to do with my post partum hormones?

In brief: Yes.

Hormonal imbalance is extreme after delivery and maternal depression, blues, anhedonia are not uncommon.
There is no concrete period when a woman can resume sexual activity postpartum - it depends on how you feel about it. If you are resuming sexual activity postpartum please use contraception until your child's first birthday.
