    This depends on how long you've been breastfeeding. The reason for cessation of your menses is basically due to increase secretion of Prolactin the hormone that facilitates milk production needed by the baby and. This impedes the balance of other hormones that ensures menstrual flow. Your period should return probably 3-6 months after child birth but this may vary with individual.
