In brief: Yes

Menses can be delayed after full term pregnancy for several months.
However, ovulation, on average occurs about 6 - 7 weeks after full term delivery. If pregnancy is not desired it is generally recommended that a family planning method be started about a month after delivery because of this fact. Ovulation occurs before menses so don't wait for menses to start a family planning method.
