I am having delayed periods after c- section. Why is it ?

Hi, i just had a baby almost 3 months ago. I am 20. I had an emergency c section. I had a normal period the first time but am now 10 days late. I had PROTECTED sex using a comdom twice. It did not break, split, and we checked it for holes. I even held the top of it so it wouldnt slip off. I took 3 clearblue digital pregnanct tests to be sure yesterday (the 9th day late) and they came out negative. Any ideas what is wrong?

Normally after delivery whether vaginal or by LSCS there can be no periods for few months this condition is called Lactational Amenorrhoea.It is due to hormonal disturbances after delivery.So if you had menses immediately after your delivery then also they can be absent or become irregular later.Since the pregnancy test after a delay of 9 days is also negative you may not be pregnant.Consult your Gynaecologist.
