In brief: 20 to 30 minutes
Just until the bleedding is controlled.
Most of the time this will be 20 to 30 minutes.

In brief: Atleast 30 minutes
If you do not have any health issue like taking medicine -blood thinners like aspirine then under normal circumstances bleeding should stop in 30 minutes or less.
