  • yes, breastfeeding can delay a period from happening.

  • this happened to me after my c section. i didnt have a period for 3 months then all of a sudden it came one month for like 2 weeks then went back to normal after that. i didnt breast feed my son so i think its just something that happens after c section to some moms.

  • I would say it's completely normal. Your body is slower to do the whole period thing when your breastfeeding... and also, your body may be adjusting to your tubal ligation. They usually say to wait AT LEAST 6 months after any kind of prcedure (that includes having a baby) for your body to be kicked back into normal. SO, IMO, you should be just fine.
