period post partum

How soon after having a baby CAN you get your period. I am currently 5 weeks post partum and I think I got it. It's been so long I don't remember what they are liek LOL. I guess Im a little worried because the blood is BRIGHT red and I had a c-section but its not a lot. Is it too soon or am I right on track?

  • lol i know what you mean...i thought i was getting it finally but turned out to be just spotting...its been 20 months since my last menstrual (breastfeeding-pregnancy) i dont know how im gonna use a tampon again...(natural birth) it seems like such an uncomfortable thing now that i havent needed one in so long...

  • I had a c-section too. About a month after i had a heavy period for like 4 days (mine use to start heavy and get lighter over 7 days) any way, i still havent really had a "normal" period since.
