  • With my first, I pumped for the first month and got my period back the very next month. With my second, I was breastfeeding and it took 3 months to get it back.

  • Thanks. This was my first c section and I was just wondering. I keep feeling like it's on its way, but nothing yet. I got my tubes tied also.

  • I had the c-section at the end of September, and I had my period at the end of December...I think.

  • Having a c-section has nothing to do with when your period will return.....your uterus does the same thing no matter how your delivered.
