  • It depends. I got mine right at the 6 week mark but I have had friends who breast fed not get theirs until after they stopped breast feeding as much as a year later!

  • it varies from woman to woman, however if you are not breastfeeding and she reaches 12 weeks I would give your doctor a call.

  • it all depends! some get it right away, some after a few months, some later. Breastfeeding also prolongs the period. My son was born in April, i didnt have my period till November. every month in between I feared I was preggo lol

  • It depends . . . it can be four to six weeks after delivery. However if you are breastfeeding that can delay it up to four to six months or not at all why you are breastfeeding.
