How long does it take to have a period after having a baby?

It can be up to a year before you have a period, as long as you're breastfeeding round the clock. If you're formula-feeding your baby, you may start your periods again any time between five weeks and three months after giving birth. So you could be fertile again just three weeks after having your baby.

Also asked, how long are you supposed to bleed after giving birth?

After having a baby, most women will experience some blood loss from their uterus (womb) until the lining is renewed. Vaginal bleeding after birth, or lochia to give it its medical name, usually lasts between two to six weeks and can vary in colour throughout that time.

How long is your period after you have a baby?

For your first period after having your baby, it is normal for it to last longer than the five to seven days you may be accustomed too. Many women say their first cycle lasts two or three weeks, although you will likely want to speak to your healthcare provider if your cycle lasts much longer than this.
