First periods after a c-section will vary from person to person and from pregnancy to pregnancy. Often you do not get them till you stop breastfeeding.

It can take several months before your cycle is regular again, and is often delayed in those that are breast feeding, sometimes until breast feeding ceases. If you have concerns, it is best to discuss with your primary care physician who can give you sound advice towards what you can expect.
