In brief: Please ask your doc

Your doc should have told u that before u left the hos , if they had to do a verticle abdo incision that means u had to have had a very large cyst, usually u need to wait 6 weeks as if u have sex to soon it could cause problems both inside and u can ruin your rectus abdominal muscles as they are not all the way healed at 3 weeks.
