After delivery, as the body slowly recovers, the new mother’s “old friend” also knowingly visits the door. After a year, the “old friend” and the new mother inevitably have some birth, so the new mother has become a little anxious. “Old friends” visit again, there are always some different performances than before. Is this “old friend” changed, or does it need time to adjust?

New mothers want to know how long they can meet “old friends” after childbirth.

It is a natural physiological phenomenon for women to recover their menstruation after childbirth. How long does postpartum menstruation come? This is a common question. The recovery time is early or late, early menstruation can come after the full moon, late to the baby’s 1 year old before recovery.

Postpartum menstruation, can be as early as 33-42 days after delivery, ovaries can ovulate. In addition, corpus luteum can also be observed after ovulation at 6 weeks postpartum. Therefore, if the mother does not breast-feed, menstruation usually comes within 6 to 8 weeks after delivery. According to the research data, 40% of the mothers without lactation resumed ovulation at 6 weeks postpartum, and only 35% of the mothers who did not resume ovulation and menstruation at 8-12 weeks postpartum. About 25% of lactating mothers resume ovulation and menstruation at 12 weeks postpartum. Most lactating mothers usually do not fully resume ovulation until 18 weeks postpartum. However, it is difficult to determine the exact time of the first postpartum menstruation, and a few women will begin to have a small to medium amount of intermittent bleeding immediately after delivery.
