How Long Did It Take For You To Get Your Period

Just wondering... - February 23

I am seven weeks post c-section and I am not br___tfeeding. I stopped bleeding around my 5th week. About three days ago, I started spotting blood again and having some mild cramping. Could this be my period coming on? I'm confused because I have heard women complain that their first period after c-section was extrememly painful and heavy. Could I just be one of the lucky ones? When do nonbr___tfeeding women usually get their periods?

I was wondering the same thing I have 4 little girls but only had my first c-section this time. It has been 6 weeks and 1 day and no period yet. I also had my tubes tied as well.

I realize you said you weren't b___stfeeding, but I had the same question b___stfeeding, b/c it took so long. I went TWO years, almost to the day. Other b___stfeeders--did you go so long w/o a period?

I had a C-section 3 months ago and yesterday I noticed some spotting. Today I'm bleeding more openly. Is this too soon for a period to return? I'm pumping, but not nursing. I do have a pain in my lower abdomen and in my lower back. I have to say that I have upped the activity in the last few weeks so I'm a little concerned about the incision. Would appreciate any input from other people who have had similar experiences.

I'm not b___st feeding anymore, I quit after 2 months, the baby is 4 1/2 months old now and I just recently skipped my period, I had one last month, so My first real period was 3 months after birth by c-section, but this month I had nothing and I am on the pill. Took a preg. test and it came out negative, I go back on Friday to check it out. I had cramping as if I was on my period but no spotting or anything. I was worried because I had a round of antibiotics last month. But the preg. test was negative. Not sure why I never bled. It puzzles me.

I got my period after 5 weeks after giving birth through C-Section. Is that possible? Has anyone had the same situation?

i had my baby girl 7 weeks ago and still not period. I also do not b___st feed. I was told that some women take a long time to regain it and if doesnt come your doctor may prescribe hormones to jump start it.

I had a c-section with my twins and was b___stfeeding them until the were five months old and i didnt get my period until eight monts but it was only like for two days and really light it continued like that for about a year and half.

I was not able to b___st feed. I got my period after about 5 weeks and it was extremely heavy!!!! No pain involved, but sounds like its your period starting.

First of all i would like to mention that apparently you dont get your period while you are b___stfeeding. Second of all i had a c-sec and my tubes done 10 weeks ago and have not yet started my period. I see my dr. in 2 days.

I had my little boy on 6/3/2011 and still have had no period im unsure of how long it should take to resume a normal period i have been told it should take around 8 weeks, i was unable to b___st feed my milk came in but i never had enough volume for baby due to delivering quite early.

Had baby 4 months 10 days ago and no period is this normal??? What should I do???

See, getting periods after pregnancy usually happens as the less you nurse your baby the sooner you start your period. Means the benefit of breastfeeding is that you can delay your period. So it's normal usually some get after six months or more. Some also have heavy bleeding after pregnancy which has to be consulted with the doctor. For heavy bleeding menstrual cup can give you relief, you may check this from cu

You may check for large menstrual cups which are used after pregnancy from Cu ima.
