How long after giving birth did your period come?

I'm 37 almost 38, it's been almost 6 weeks after having my c-section and I'm not breastfeeding so I expected it to be here already. I was a heavy bleeder before I got pregnant, and I was told this first period would be even worse, so I want to be over and done with it :) I just am looking for a range of when it should show up....

  • Well, I didn't start having my period regularly for about 9 months, but I was BF. I did get my period at about 7 weeks post delivery and it lasted for a a week and a half. For me, it wasn't that bad, it was just really long.

  • I bled for 6 weeks straight after having Taylor. The Dr said this was normal and I was probably experiencing my period as well. After my 6 week appt, I started about a month 10 weeks after.
