Period after breastfeeding

I have just finished Bf my baby, she is just over 7 months now. I know everyone is different but is there a usual length of time once you finish that your period returns or have most people had theirs by this stage. I had one at 4 weeks but nothing since. Been having niggly pains but nothing apart from that

I've had two periods now and I've been breastfeeding for just under five months, my first was about 4 weeks ago and I'm iny second one now. My mate got hers about five or 6 months in when she introduced solids and dropped some feeds. Sadly I deed more than ever but I still get the periods.

Everyone is TOTALLY different! I got mine soon after we started formula but they didnt return to their previous patten straight away. I dont know how long it would have taken because we were TTC and obv I got pregnant pretty quickly.
