How Long After Pregnancy Do You Get Your Period?

When exactly will I next get my period? If you aren’t nursing your baby, you should start getting your period again between between six and eight weeks after you give birth. It is possible that your period will return at a different time each month if you choose to breastfeed.

How often do you get your period after having a baby?

  • There are no assurances that you will immediately resume having periods after giving birth.
  • It’s possible that you’ll start having periods like clockwork, with bleeding lasting anywhere from two to seven days on average every 28 days.
  • There is also the possibility that they are irregular, which indicates that the length or duration of your cycle is either greater or shorter than it often is.

How long does it take for period to stop after delivery?

After birth, the flow will be strong for anywhere from three to ten days. As it fades away, the color changes from red to pink to brown and finally a shade that is somewhere between yellow and white. Because even little bleeding can last for up to a month or even longer, you should always have a supply of sanitary pads on hand.

Is it normal to get your period 6 weeks after giving birth?

It is totally common for women who breastfeed exclusively to experience their first postpartum period as early as six weeks after delivery or as long as a year or more later — even 18 months after giving birth. Breastfeeding is the healthiest option for mothers and babies. It’s possible that you’ll start getting your period sooner if you breastfeed at least portion of the time.
