You're not pg are you?! ;)

Seriously though it can depend on hormones - i bled for 6 weeks, then went back regular as clock work - first AF was 4 weeks later, and the day after i stopped bf!!

Sallyanne, mine didn't return until about 3 weeks after I completely stopped breast-feeding - so about 9 months!
