Is this normal after having a baby? adult content

I had a c-section 7/21/2010 and ended up with MRSA after wards and was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks. My baby is almost 2 months old and I have not started my period yet, and I have been having some light bleeding some days, as well as some brownish discharge. Is this normal? I was thinking part of it may be my body still healing from the infection that I had. Any input would be appreciated.

  • if you are breast feeding you won't get your period for a long time, still doesn't mean you can't get pregnant though

  • My dd is almost 7 months old and I am still waiting for my period. I am bfeeding- but I still end up taking a preg. test just about every 2-3 weeks because I am nervous about being pregnant.
