I had my baby via c section in May and I still havent started my period. I went to see the doctor for my 8 weeks check up and she said I should start any day,but nothing yet. Before anyone ask no im not pregnant again . As I havent had sex since I was 7 month pregnant and I had a healthy pregnancy and no complications when I delivered. So my question is,any of you ladies that had a csection ,how long did it take you to start your period?
Im ff too . So I know if you bf it might take longer,but im not. I will be making another doc appointment soon to find out whats going on but I wanted to ask here ,is it normal that I havent started yet?
TIA ladies.

Lol, was that part already in the post or did you add it? I must not be awake yet.

I wouldn't worry too much about not starting yet though. Your body will start when it is ready.

I've had two c-sections. My first I was combo feeding, this time EBF. My first I got my period back at around 12 weeks or so. I haven't gotten it yet this time around (baby is 4.5 months old)

I had a friend who went 5 months before she got hers. She didn't bf either.

With my first csection, it took about 8 weeks to get my period. With my second, I had very heavy bleeding for many weeks and my regular period started about 12 weeks after surgery.

After my first it was four weeks on the dot, but the dr was very surprised. After my second, my pp bleeding lasted longer but my period didn't come for 7 months (I was bfing around half the time).
