  • I think I bled from the delivery for about 2 weeks, and then about 4 weeks later got my period. But it can vary. You can bleed for 6 weeks. Everyone is different.

  • Mine was 3 weeks and I started my period at 6 weeks postpardom. Everyone is different, and I think it has to do with if you breastfeed or not. I didnt.
