Thanks for the query.

During breastfeeding periods are often irregular due to hormonal fluctuation. This does not mean that one cannot become pregnant while breast feeding; therefore make sure to use some contraceptive. In consultation with your local doctor you can have multiload insertion/ oral pills or condoms.

Get your thyroid checked (TSH) test because some thyroid problems manifest after delivery which can also cause menstrual irregularity.

Hope I answered your query. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Best wishes
