  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I am totally not laughing at you sweetie. I bled for 3 months after my c-section, lol. So I'm not really sure when that first actual period comes in, good luck!

  • I had a c section also, only bled for 2 weeks (really light after the first week) and the got my period back at 4 months, and I was breastfeeding full time. It just depends!

  • I got my period back at 14 months with my daughter that I breastfed for 2 years.

    My son is 7 months old, I'm breastfeeding and I haven't had one yet.

    I'm not ovulating right now though (charting) so I'm not expecting one any time soon.

  • i bfed my son for 14 months and had a vaginal birth. i got my period back at 4 months pp, but it was not regular bc of bfing. i think i had a total of 4 or 5 periods after i had him. i'm 26 wks pregnant now. so, it was awesome only have 5 periods in a years time.

  • That little bit of breastfeeding could delay it a bit, but it's not likely. Might need to talk to someone if it doesn't come back in the next month.

  • I had my son 12/09/10, and he just celebrated his 1st birthday. Other than the postpardum bleeding after he was born, I have not had a regular cycle. So a few more months it will be 2 years since I have had a regular cycle, and almost a full year since his birth, and the end of the postpardum bleeding. He is a breastfed baby, but in the past few months, not very frequently. I like not having a cycle, but hate not knowing when it will start.
