Default Can I spread gypsum after just 2 weeks?

In an attempt to improve soil density as well as lower the pH, I spread a bag of garden gypsum on my yard, soaked the whole place down, that was 2 weeks ago. Is it OK to do again now? Or is this a once or twice a year deal?

Repeated applications of gypsum is o.k.. Be careful that the soil is not soggy for extended periods of time.
