Normal cycle after c-section
How long after a c-section should my "normal" menstrual cycle start? I had my c-section on the 13 of December and I still haven't started my period. I'm not using any birth controll (not on the pill) as I have pcos and my gynae said that it's hard enough for me to fall pregnant and I would love another baby soon. Thanks for the help!

If you are breastfeeding, your periods could stay away for several months. If not, you should have a period within 3 months of delivery.
