menstrual cycle after c section

I had my son by c section on March 15, 2008 and I still have not gotten my menstrual cycle.  My huband and I had not had sex since I was pregnant, but we started to, two weeks ago.  We did not use protection, but he did pull out.  Should I be worried that I might be pregnant?  How long does it normally take for someone to get their menstrual cycle after giving birth.  I thought it was only about 6 weeks.

im in the same boat. i had my son march 24th 2008 by c-section, bled for three weeks, then stopped and got a very heavy period two weeks after that.. however, im overdue for another one and still have not got it. i dont think im pregnant again because we have been using condoms or withdrawl. has anyone answered on how long it takes for it to get normal?

hi, i think it's normal having menstrual cycle changes first 6 month, even sometimes it needs a year to get back to your normal cycle. as i know first 3-4 month you have periods every 2-3 weeks.
doctors says, to avoid of getting pregnant first 6 weeks after c-section.
