  • If you breastfeed you won't get it back for like 9 months or so.

  • i ebf and mine came back at 6 weeks 2 out of 3 times, so i would disagree with pp that insist that holds off your period, but anyway, you'll probably get it back by 6 weeks.

  • it came back around 6 weeks or so later, but it wasn't regular until 4 or 5 months after. I thought I was pregnant again so many times. lol
