Can return: as soon a 1 cycle or could take up to 6 months.

Few weeks: It is difficult to anticipate one's return to ovulation. You have to expect that your body will do the usual and return to normal menses in a few weeks, so you must use protection if you are not quite prepared. If you are ready to conceive, take your prenatal vitamins and go for it. Sometimes, it may take longer than you wish for. Be patient. Don't be surprised if you are pregnant before bleeding.
