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.

How long after you stop breastfeeding will your period start?

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... I started back up at 6 weeks postpartum, and I'm breastfeeding my son. The average time, I think, is about 6 months postpartum, but then there are people like me who ovulated 4 weeks after giving birth! (Note: I've known people who didn't start up for a year of two after giving birth.)

What are the chances of getting pregnant again right after 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.
