This is for anyone who has had a c-section. How long afterwards was it that you had your period? My baby is almost 8 weeks old and I still have not had one. My Dr. said to just wait it out but I also have some other female problems as well. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issues.

I had a c-section and had my first period around 4-6 weeks after the initial weeks of bleeding. I breastfed exclusively so that made no difference (I remember being disappointed that my period was back so soon...lol).

I had a c-section. My doctor went ahead and started me on birth control even though I hadn't had a period because I have polycystic ovarian syndrome and she didn't know when or if I would have a period. I did end up having bleeding around 7 1/2 weeks even though it wasn't the time for my period in my pill pack. So, I guess it was break through bleeding and it was pretty heavy. Not sure that will help you at all. But, I agree if you don't feel its normal then just stay on top of your doctor or maybe get another opinion. Good luck!

mine came between 8- 9 weeks- I also have "other female problems" - severe endiometriosis- might have to have hysterectmy at age of 33- and my tubes are tied-- just keep on your doctor!- If you think this is not normal, than maybe go to another Dr.
OK, so after the initial bleeding, if you're breastfeeding it can be up to 8 months before you have another period- the wonders of breastfeeding! I have a 7 month old, and still no period. This is perfectly normal- and I had a c-section too.
