  • It's perfectly normal. it can take up to 6 or so months. HOWEVER, you become fertile a couple weeks before your period starts. since you don't know when you'll start, USE BIRTH CONTROL if you don't want kids again so soon!!! also, sometimes before your period starts, you may spot on and off for up to two weeks. that's normal also, so be prepared! :)

  • It's normal for you to get your period back any time between a couple weeks after birth or not until months after you wean entirely. Assume you are fertile any way and use BC if you aren't ready to conceive again.

  • Some women don't get their periods until 6 or 8 months after having their baby.
