The cycle length can really vary. There is no set day length. Some women will notice their first cycles after pregnancy are heavier, but that's not all women. But it's likely to be similar to a typical cycle length of 5-7 days or so.

periods can be just a spot or can last up to a few weeks . They can be brought on or stopped by stress and change with change of life .  Even its colour changes can be noticed at the beginning and end of periods . if you notice any pain you should consult  your doctor .  . I wouldn't be surprised if they lasted a day to a week . congratulations on parent hood
