Yes: When a woman gets a period after cesarean has a few factors to consider. Breastfeeding? Breastfeeding can stop normal menstruation, thus a woman may not have a period the entire time she's breastfeeding. If not, then period may come as soon as 6 weeks after cesarean, but could definitely take longer even without breastfeeding. You'll release egg prior to menses, so use birth control if worried. ...Read more

I recommend waiting 1 full cycle after an uncomplicated miscarriage and confirming the HCG has fallen. Many doctors recommend a longer wait, but it seems arbitrary to me after 1 cycle. ...Read more
