It is different for everyone. If you are not breastfeeding you will probably start your cycle soon. If you breastfeed it can take anwhere from a few months to over a year to start your period. I breastfeed exclusively and I usually have my first period when my baby is about 10 months to 14 months. I always get pregnant during the first cycle after my first period. My kids are all between 18-22 months apart and we have used no birth control other than breastfeeding.
Thanks for the responses. I'm currently breastfeeding 1/2 time. I'm also not on the pill. My doctor said it's best to wait a year, but that doesn't neccessarily mean something will go wrong in the second pregnancy. She went on to say that before birth control, it was very common to have births occur so close together. We're not "trying" to get pregnant, but if it happens...
We'd like to have another child within the next two years.
