Mooncup use after c-section

I had an elective c-section 6 weeks ago, and my lochia stopped a week ago. I had no internal examinations during my pregnancy and during and after my c-section, so my va-jay-jay is still in pre-pregnancy condition.

However, my period returned 2 days ago, and I am wanting to use my Mooncup again. I was hoping that my period wouldn't return for another couple of months, considering I am exclusively breastfeeding my son every 2 to 3 hours.

Is it safe to start using it again for this period? I am sick of wearing maternity pads (and all that waste ends up in the environment). At the moment, I am just using the rest of my maternity pads.

TIA :-)
