Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
To postpone the periods, you can take tablet Regestrone 5 mg twice a day from 5 days prior to the expected periods and continue the tablet till you want to delay the periods.
Periods will occur within 5-7 days once you stop the tablet.
It can taken safely while breastfeeding.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
