  • It depends on whether you are breastfeedin or on birth control. I breastfed my younest and didnt use birth control and i didnt have my period until my daughter was 7 mths.

  • For me it was 4 weeks for the bleeding to stop. Then I got my period 2 months later. Everyone is different. Good Luck~
