My post pregnancy bleed lasted 3.5 wks and I had a cesarean section.

Answer: Hi, It is very common not for your periods to return until the baby is around 6 months old due to breast feeding. Breast feeding causes the delay and when the baby strats solids and drops a breast feed your period tends to return. Best wishes, Alex.
