  • with my last baby when she was 13 months, my ds is almost 12 months and no AF yet but I'm breastfeeding. If your ff I'd say it could come 4 to 6 weeks after you stop pp bleeding...

  • Anytime from a few weeks, to a few months, to a year or so. Are you nursing? Sometimes that can delay it longer.

  • I breastfed and didn't start until almost a year after each. After my 2nd I got pregnant with my 3rd before I started my period again, so I went like 30 months without having my period!
