i had my daughter by c section in august. i had a womb and scar infection for 3 months after and then had a massive period. since then, i have not had a period and last month i found a 2 inch clot when i wiped. i have still not had a period. i have stopped taking my pill as i thought this was the problem but i don't think it is. any ideas? thanks

Clots like this are not concerning since that is the nature of blood that pools for a time. I suspect your hormones are just getting back to normal following the birth. If you are breastfeeding I would not expect you to have a period at all as long as you are doing it exclusively.
I would just watch and see what happens over the next few months.
