How long does it take to get your first period after a baby if you don't breast feed?

I ovulated around 7 weeks pp though I was still bleeding a tiny bit. I know it was that coz the pain was horrible I actually nearly passed out with it. Lochia completely stopped around 8 weeks and I had one week or thereabouts with no bleeding whatsoever before my first period started :( so about 9-10 weeks pp before my period came back.

Oh the full works! Cramps, bloating, nausea, etc plus very heavy flow. The cramps were so bad it felt like early labour all over again. I went straight back on the pill and thankfully they're not as bad since!
