Well, if you want it and your crotch *feels* OK (aka: it doesn't hurt when you sit certain ways or squat or touch it) then it's probably fine. It's still a bit early by the textbook though. . .if you take it easy the next few days bleeding will probably stop by the 3 week mark and then you won't have that open wound inside. . .Did you have stiches?
Either way take it slow when you do it. Let DH know ahead of time that depending on the way it feels you may need to stop before. . . uh. . .anyone's "done".
I felt very ready at 4 weeks last time and when we tried it hurt a lot more than I anticipated. I did have stiches that time. I was still spotting at that point.
This time I am feeling ready and my discharge is about where your's is and I'm2 weeks 5 days PP. We shall see what happens this weekend

We have tried twice (at 10 days and 15 days) and it did not hurt but it felt odd and not right so we stopped -- we'll likely keep doing that until it works
TMI but i have had orgasms, just from clit stim, starting at about 5 days, so you can do that if dtd does not work yet
