Postpartum Question....

I had a c-section and I was wondering how soon it is normally before your period returns. Its been 8 weeks and I dont think I have had one yet. Is this cause for concern?

  • I'm not a good one to reply to this. If you are breast feeding I know it is very normal. If you are not breast feeding I don't know.

  • It depends on if you're breastfeeding... I didn't have one for 18 months while nursing my first and it's completely normal. If you aren't nursing I would expect it any time now.

  • No - it depends on if you're breastfeeding or not. I breastfed and didn't get my period until like 8-9 months later, after my csection and my vaginal deliveries.

  • I only bf'd for the first little while but I didn't get my period back for about 3 or 4 months after my C section. Everyone is different though, so don't freak out :)
