Brief Answer:
LACTATION AMENORRHEA IS QUITE PHYSIOLOGICAL.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

If she is undergoing EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDING to her baby for initial 6 months or thereafter, then she DOESN'T get her regular period.

It is quite physiological and called LACTATION AMENORRHEA (No period while on breast feeding). It also acts as contraception and gives higher protection.

She will resume her regular period after stopping breast feeding. Until then, you needn't to be worried much. Practice protected sex during this time to avoid MINIMAL chance of unwanted pregnancy.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish her good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr Soumen
