Is it unsafe to have sex after being diagnosed with a dvt? If so, for how long should one not have sex?

In brief: No need to delay

Assuming you are not engaging in positions which interfere with blood return from your legs, and you are being treated appropriately for your DVT there does not seem to be a reason for delay.

In brief: No answer

Dvt is treated with blood thinners.
If you are taking therapeutic blood thinners, you are probably ok. The exception would be patients with a large amount of clot or "free floating clot" - ask your doctor about the extent of your dvt.
