The first period after the C-section can be heavy. But if it is too heavy that you need to change the tampon or sanitary napkin in less than every two hours; it would warrant a visit to your GP or Obs / Gyne. You may need medications, in the case of very heavy period.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
