How long after your c-section did you start your regular cycle? I had my c-section 6 wks 1 day ago and heard its a heavy one, so I just want to be prepared. I'm not breastfeeding. I bleed for 2 wks.

I went several months with out a period after I had mine. FInally I took the pill for about 2 months and that got me going again.

I am trying to remember right after I bled for like 3 wks last week was more like spotting my daughter was born Nov 4th o6 and my regular cycle returned at the end of January 07 but I did breastfeed for 10wks.  When my regular cycle came back it was back to normal not heavier then usual and cramping on the first day I can even say less cramping then I used to have to that could have been the calcium supplement I was taking. Hope this helped!
