It depends on how intense are your workouts.The more intense the more often you will need a deload.

Usually every 5-6 weeks I need one.I just feel crushed after 5-6 weeks of training

I think its important to set a time to take a week off, be it the 4th week or the 8th week, otherwise you'll never take them. When the time comes, take it no matter how your body feels. Although, this is not to say you shouldn't take it earlier if your body says you should.
