In brief: Variable

Breast feeding delays the return of menstrual period but is not an effective form of birth control.
If no breast feeding, menses usually returns in 11-12 weeks but can occur much sooner.

In brief: Varies

Is breast feeding completely you will not have a period.
If only partly breast feeding you can be fertile and may or may not menstruate.
