User avatar Hi Chef37,
Generally speaking, menstrual cycles typically resume after approximately six weeks of giving birth. In some women, several months pass with multiple irregularities in their cycles. Nursing (breast feeding), hormone imbalances, etc., also alters cycles. Are you nursing? If not I would suggest contacting your physician for an evaluation to assure that all is in order. He/she may suggest that a few months of birth control use, which may regulate your cycles again.
