  • It varies from person to person. And I did not nurse and I did not get my period for 10 months after I gave birth (naturally) to my child.

  • I nursed and it took almost 20 months for my period to return. I know women that took two or three months if they didn't nurse.

  • I had my baby in September and don't have my period either. It depends on if you are breast feeding or not. That will prevent many from having a period (is supposed to).
