  • it's going to depend on your body, if you are breast feeding or not, and the amount you do breastfeed if you are.

  • it can start as early as 6 weeks PP, but most breastfeeding exclusively mom's don't get a period until 6 months PP or later, however you can get pregnant before you first Period, because you ovulate before your period.
