no period after c-section and tubal

I had a baby boy on 6-1-06 by c-section and also had a tubal ligation done as well.  I had bleeding for about 3-31/2 weeks after and haven't bled since.  I have yet to have a period and it has been around 3 months since I have bled at all and I am starting to worry and also I have been quite moody as well.  Has anyone ever experienced this?  Do you think I am okay or  am I just stressing too much about the situation?

Are you breastfeeding I didnt get a period for 5 months after a c section apart from when I first had c section my sil was the same and she had tubal as well I wouldnt worry make the most of not having a period. I started weaning at 5 months and thats when the period returned for me anyway.

I had a c-sect. June 22nd and I also still have not had a period (I'm happy without it!). It sounds normal to me, but call your dr. and ask..

I had a C-Section in July.  I am not breastfeeding and I still have not had my period.  I am 11 weeks postpartum and I am starting to worry also.  Is this normal?  I took a pregnancy test and it was negative.

I am 13 weeks postpartum and having the same problem. I breastfed for about 1 1/2 months, and have been done for a while now and NO PERIOD! I got worried and took a test tonight, negative..not sure what to say or do. My mother's freaking out because she thinks I'm "active" again, which, we've fooled around, but nothing that would risk pregnancy.

I deliverd my son 3/27/2007 by c-section and had a tubal ligation at the same time. It is now October 2008 and I have yet to have any type of period. I am still breastfeeding but only like twice a day. My prior two pregnancies I also breastfed but began periods between 6-8 months post partum. I cramp now and then and will sometimes bleed or have pain during/after intercourse but the doctors have told me that it's from scar tissue from the three sections I had ( 2001, 2005 & 2007). I have talked to them about my lack of menstruating and they haven't felt it's a big deal but I don'y feel right. I cramp during intercourse and the bleeding I have is brown and gooey. It's also smelly. I've been checked for STDS and also bacterial infections and everything's come b ack clean. anyone else have this type of experience?
