I'm approaching week 7 after my csection and my period still didn't start. when should it? I was nursing but havn't since several weeks. The birth control I am going to be on requires that I start my period and in the meantime, i'm not protected.

When should aunt flo start after a c-section?

TIA

Hmm, Mine didn't start till about 8 months post c. I was breastfeeding though and I think it started about the time I introduced solids. I would talk to your doctor and find out if you can start your BC earlier quite often the put women on birth control pills to help regulate periods so there must be something they can do for you.

Keep us posted.

Everyone is really different. I always start about 1 month after I stop nursing... so, it really just depends on your body and hormones. There are plenty of women who don't re-start for months even if they don't nurse.


G/L and if you're concerned, talk with your doc.

I took Micronor for the first 8 weeks, and had a Mirena IUD put in on January 5th.
I'm pretty sure I just barley got mine. :) Yesterday. :D I'm 12 weeks postpartum.

I am about 14 weeks PP, and I just got my period last week. It was normal - just like before my pregnancy, not heavier or more uncomfortable in any way.
