Period question...

I just stopped breastfeeding my son a week ago, he is almost 7 weeks old. I haven't had my monthly yet, so my question is, when after stopping nursing, when would someone get their period?? Did anyone just stop breastfeeding and in the same boat. I know every women is different, I just want to have an idea of when I would get my first postpartum period. Thanks.

  • With dd #1 I stopped breastfeeding at 6 weeks and I got my period about 20 days later.With dd #2 I was still breastfeeding when it started and this was about 8,5 months after birth.
