Dear Savannah, welcome to healthcare magic.
As long as you are lactating, you may have no periods at all, few of them or you may have regular periods. It is a personal difference. Having no period at all is named "lactational amenorrhea". The pills you take are named mini pills or progesterone only pills. They have the advantage of providing contraception without affecting the quantity or quality of breast milk. They do not affect your menstruation. They should be taken continually and at a fixed time.
I hope these words were useful to you.
Good luck.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
