Return of Period

My son is 5 mo and 1 week. He stopped nursing about a month ago and I had been exclusively pumping up until just a few days ago when I decided to quit. I am almost done pumping altogether. I had to pump once today for 6-7m for comfort (about 5 oz). I haven't had my period yet. When should it start back up? (I have been on the mini pill for about 2 1/2 months now.)
