  • Ask your doctor.

  • I didn't have my period until 2 months later, everyone is different. Breastfeeding delays your period too, I've heard of women not getting it until 7 months after the baby.

  • Are you BFing? I heard you can go a year or more without one if you are.

    And I think it's quite a while before you get it again even if you aren't BFing.

  • It might be awhile before you have one again.

  • It can take a while for your body to get back to normal. If you're breastfeeding it can be many months or even more than a year before it comes back.

  • it can be several weeks or months before yu get a period, but make sure that you are using birth control even when you aren't getting it so you don't have 2 kids in 1 year! (Unless that's what you want :)

  • Talk to the dr. Everyone I know got it right after giving birth.

  • It took me 2 months to get my cycle after having DS.
    If you are breast feeding it could take much much longer.

  • I didn't get mine back with my first two until they were 6 weeks old, even while exclusively breastfeeding.
