It depends for each women and if you are nursing or not . With my last I was nursing and I had one super light period at about 6 weeks postpartum and then didn't have another one until I was done nursing/pumping when he was 6 months old and then it took about a month for it to come back . I now some women have their period even when they are nursing so it just depends on each women's body .
