  • I got my real period about 3 weeks later too. And I was breastfeeding too.... so i guess its normal. My periods have been normal ever since.( but i stopped BF after that)

  • I got mine 10 days after the post-c-section bleeding finished. My next period after that was three weeks later. I thought I was going to go nuts at first, but things normalized after a few months.

  • Could be. My lochia finally stopped at 3 1/2 weeks, and I got my period at 4 weeks pp. I was also EBFing.
