I don't know if the doctor went over this with you or not, but they are supposed to. Pill or no pill.... No doctor will ok you for sex until at least 4 weeks after you've given birth, and more 6 weeks after. There is too much risk of infection to have sex early on and you need to have time to heal.

It is possible to become pregnant this early too because your hormone levels are still very high. It is very dangerous to do this. You will also not be able to test and find out because you will get a positive reading on an HPT whether you are pregnant or not.
