You can have sex right away, it just has to be with a condom for a week after insertion.
As far as sex without condoms, it depends on where in your cycle you were when it was inserted. If it was inserted between Day 1 (the day you started your period) and Day 5 of your cycle, then you do not need a back up. If it is inserted any other days of your cycle, a barrier method, like condoms, needs to be used the first seven consecutive days after insertion.
