Thanks for the query.
After cesarean section spotting can be seen for few weeks and this period can vary from person to person and also depends on breast feeding etc.
Petogen contains medroxy progesterone and it can cause side effects like irregular spotting, decreased libido, nausea etc.
Usually these symptoms will subside soon.
If you are having continuous problem, you can ask your doctor to change the contraceptive method.
To get pre-pregnancy figure back, you have to do exercises 2 months after the surgery.
Take care.
