Menstral Bleeding

Postby Littlegirl » Sun Jun 22, 2008 12:29 am


This is not a weight loss topic but for those who have had children particularily a c-section, is it normal to commence your period again one week after the after birth bleeding has ceased? I was so glad i finally stopped having to buy maternity pads last week, until this morning when i woke up! I thought that it took quite a few weeks (up to six weeks) before your period re-commenced?
