The return of your periods or the “restoration of menstruation” generally occurs after six to eight weeks, or possibly later in the case of breastfeeding.

These “first” periods are often more abundant and longer than usual. The menstrual cycle regulates itself
thereafter. Fertility returns before the restoration of menstruation.

If you do not want another pregnancy immediately, contraception can be offered. Talk to the gynecologist or midwife before leaving the maternity ward.
