One of the questions you might be thinking is “when will my periods return?”

It is very difficult to say when your periods will return. Every woman is different and it will very much depend on how you are feeding your baby.

If you are exclusively breastfeeding this will delay the return of your periods for however long you breastfeed.


However, if you are supplementing with formula your periods could return anytime from 3 to 8 months after you start to supplement.

If you are formula feeding your period can return anywhere from 5 weeks to 3 Months after giving birth!

You should discuss it with your GP if you are worried that your period has not returned.
