    Sure, loads of people have.

    It increases your risk of getting a dangerous infection but it's by no means insta-deadly.

    You can, but you risk a life threatening infection.

    Your uterus has an open wound. That is the reason you cannot have sex without risking your health.

    I had it after about three weeks. Not the best decision since I had a vaginal birth that left me with a periurethral tear and stitches that still weren't entirely dissolved yet.

      I'm not sure how long it took for them to totally dissolve...but at around a month postpartum, I finally felt like I could pee without wanting to faint, lol, so I'd say about a month.

    Yes, plenty of women have.  A large number of those women develop life-threatening infections and complications.  Some even died.  There's a reason women are told to wait at least six weeks, and it isn't just to rest up.

    My aunt did and 9 months later 2nd baby arrived and 10 months later 3rd baby arrived etc, she had 8 babies most 9-10 months between most of them and she mainly used the pull out method. Personally I was too tired for several months after my daughter was born
