  • Are you breastfeeding? I breastfed and didn't get my period until I weaned (14mon), but then they went back to normal just maybe a little crampier.

  • It depends on if you are bf or not. Some women never have a period til the baby is weaned, and other get it back right on schedule.

  • First it depends on whether you are nursing or on any type of hormonal birth control and how long ago you had the baby. More info is definitely needed before giving a better answer then that.
