Cramping after c-section and tubal

I'm also most 6 weeks postpartum from a c-section. I had a tubal ligation done at the same time. I'm also breastfeeding. I started have menstrual-like cramps a couple days ago. Is it possible to be getting my period back this early? Or what else could be causing this?

  • I had a c-section and tubal and got my period at 5 weeks but I wasn't breastfeeding. I would assume it's entirely possible.

  • That depends its highly possible to get your period back right away. After my c-section I thought since I was breastfeeding I wouldn't get my period until I stopped breastfeeding. Boy was I so wronf when my period returned it was maybe two months after and man the first one was horrible I remember laying up for three days taking medicine. Good Luck you may not get your period I will speak with your OBGYN
