In brief: See your doctor

After a pregnancy it takes 4-6 weeks for the uterus to shrink back down to regular size and for the cervix to close up.
Before that you are at risk of infection. So if you have pain after intercourse, you should see your doctor for an exam. You can also tear the vaginal walls or disrupt a repair that was done at the delivery.

There are small tears and lacerations that have not healed yet. See your doc.
