  • there's no set time, women get it at varying times after the birth of their child, yes, not breastfeeding may mean you'll get it sooner.

  • I breastfed and got a period at 6 wks PP. I think I had one at 2wks PP, but it could have just been a heavy flow of after-birth crap. There's really no set time. Some women don't have periods the entire time they're breastfeeding.

  • most people start back on track if they had consistent periods before their baby mainly around 6 weeks or so.
