Can,t remember with dd1 but fairly quickly as breastfeeding was compromised. With DD2 periods stared immediately and I breast fed until age 3. I was given some medicine to "stop" pnd though which I stoped because of the long first period.

about 4-5 months both times (breastfed for 12 months first time and 9 months second time).

A friend also didn't get hers back until she stopped feeding altogether. I know which I would prefer - but if you want a second baby it changes your perspective I guess .
