There is simply no way to predict how soon. Every woman is different. If you are breastfeeding without supplementing, that usually suppresses the menstrual cycle altogether. It usually comes back when the baby starts eating solid foods or goes longer between feedings. Usually. Not always.

It will start back up within a few months. It is possible to ovulate during this time so be careful. Don't rely on breastfeeding as a source of birth control...

The average time, I think, is about 6 months postpartum, but then there are people like me who ovulated 4 weeks after giving birth!

Your body returns to its normal ovulating pattern. so if you want to take birth control, you need to start taking either the pill (if you are bottle feeding) or the mini pill (if you are breastfeeding) on DAY 21 following the birth of your baby. If you are breastfeeding, it is fairly unlikely that you would get pregant in the first couple of weeks.

it depends on the person and also whether you breast feed or not. i breastfed both my daughters till they were a year old and i didn't get a period until they were about 10 months old. breastfeeding exclusively can hasten the return of your period. i know people who have gotten pregnant 6 weeks after giving birth, so your body is going to start when it is ready.

No, you don't have to start your period to get pregnant.

Always use birth control to prevent unintended pregnancy.
