  • Depends. If you don't breastfeed, anywhere from 4-8 weeks. If you DO breastfeed exclusively for at least 6 months then it will be more likely to come later (average is 14 months after birth).

  • I got mine about exactly 6 weeks after. I was only able to breast feed for two weeks.

  • I breastfeed and my daughter is almost 10 months old and I have yet to get my period back.

  • Even without breastfeeding it can take a while. But expect it when it's leasdt convenient...that does seem to be the one constant.
