when will my period appear after giving birth?

Depends.... if you don't breastfeed and use formula you usually get your period back much sooner. Even if you are nursing, when your period returns varies wildly from one mom to the next, or even one pregnancy to the next. I know multiple pairs of siblings who are 11 months apart! In some cases, the mom got pregnant without even having a period between pregnancies. My period was always back between five and seven months post-partum. Some moms who nurse their babies into toddlerhood easily go 14 or 16 months without a period.
