Had c-section 6 weeks ago - when am i likely to have a period again? Can't remember from last time?

Are you breastfeeding? I think it takes much longer for periods to come back if you are. I bf and my ds was 9mo when I had my first period after his birth. Not sure if it makes a difference whether you give birth by c section or vaginally though.

As Marjee said- c-sect should make no difference at all and it depends on how you are feeding your baby. I had a c-sect and I BF and my periods didn't return until DS was 9 mths but everyone is different.
