Brief Answer:
Just after 12 weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
After a C-section it is best to get copper IUD inserted after 12 weeks of surgery and just after the periods have finished.
Usually pregnancy is unlikely to happen during first 10-12 weeks after the cesarean delivery.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Regards.

Brief Answer:
Better to insert after weeks after the periods.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
It can be inserted after 8 weeks as the bleeding would have completely stopped by then and it is best to get it inserted just after the periods are finished.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
