Welcome to Healthcare Magic
If you are breast feeding there is less chance of getting periods because breast feeding releases hormones which usually prevent ovulation and menses till about 6-8 months. You must breast feed your baby nothing but breast milk for 4-6 months and then start weaning using soft diet. Nothing to worry. Eat healthy. Avoid taking any medicine without medical advice. Stay fit and healthy.

Hi,thanks for query.Normally after delivery by any methods you do not get your periods till about 4-6 months,if you are breast feeding your child,this could be even longer.There is no need to worry.What you had might be some removal waster products from the uterus which normally lasts for about 2-3 weeks after delivery.For more information please visit your doctor.
wishing you good health.
