  • Depends if your BF or not. I got mine around 6 weeks- about a month after I stopped BF. Just use protection, I'm not sure its safe to get pregnant again so soon.

  • Every woman is different. I've known women who get their periods back after a couple of months even though the are ebf and some go over a year. I went 7 months with my first as I was mostly bf'ing him and stopped when he was 6 months. My other 2 were 12-13 months and I bf'd them only (plus solids after 6 months) but no bottles.

    Use contraception unless you want 2 under 1.

  • I did not bf and i think my normal period showed again at about 10 weeks or so

  • Yeah, I think it depends on the woman. Breastfeeding can play apart. It all depends. If you don't want another kids so soon, you should get on birth control. Good luck.
