How long is a piece of string?

I bled like a stuck pig for about 3 weeks.

A friend of mine didn't even manage to use her box of 10 san pads.

5/6 weeks here. The placenta leaves a wound the size of a dinner plate.

Just over 6 weeks here. I was mightily fed up by the end.

just over 6 weeks with all of them. With the older two my period came back at 8 weeks post partum. I ws really shortchanged on that considering I was still breastfeeding.

About 2 weeks with dd, and about 6-7 weeks with ds.

Blimey, ok! Was getting twitchy @ 11 days!

Five weeks for me both times. Anything up to 8/9 weeks is quite normal IIRC.
