I agree with jessica... if you are exclusively breastfeeding then u wont have any period till approx six months then they slowly come back.. but once u stop breastfeeding the vice versa is true.. they will start showing in a day or two or max a week... if it gets prolonged do see you GP. :)

I think the opposite is true. Exclusive breastfeeding usually stops your period especially in the first 6 months after giving birth. I exclusively breastfed my daughter till she was 6 months old and by then my period had come back and once I stopped breastfeeding, it didn't affect my periods at all.
