In brief: Vaginitis
Vaginal discharge needs to be evaluated to determine the cause.
Watery discharge which is worse after a period sounds like bacterial vaginosis. This is an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. Other causes like yeast, trichomoniasis as well as other infections are other possibilities. Unlikely this is related to your c section 12 weeks ago. This should be easy for your doc to figure out in the office.

Sometimes periods can change after birth. If the only change is the watery discharge with your periods-no increase in bleeding, pain, discharge separate from your period- it is unlikely to be anything worrisome. If you do notice any of the other changes, you should see your doctor.
