It varies very much. Some women get a period about a month after giving birth. Some women do not get a period for months if they are fully breastfeeding. Just because you don't have a period does not mean you cannot get pregnant. Every Ob/Gyn (or GP) has seen women pregnant at the post-natal check. Also do not rely on breastfeeding as a contraceptive. I doesn't work like that. Every woman is different. I was breast feeding for a month and then had to stop. Then six weeks later got my first period. So all up it was ten weeks later. I don't even know if it matters if you breast feed or not to whether your period comes earlier or later. Anyway, like I said Everyone is different. Good Luck
