Menstruation after delivery if breastfeeding

Most breastfeeding women will have their first menstrual period around 12 weeks. Some women will not experience their first period until later though, anytime during the first 12months if they are exclusively breastfeeding. It is normal and common for your period to return anytime between 12 weeks and 12 months.
