When can I expect to be having my period back?

I stopped breastfeeding completely a little over 4 weeks ago, after slowly weaning for the previous 3 weeks. My baby is now 9 months old.

Answer: Hi, This varies considerably in every woman. Generally it will return in about 2 – 3 months time. Best wishes, Alex
