Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, the period in which lactation suppresses your menstruation and fertility is called lactational amenorrhea. There is no normal (menstruation during breastfeeding, it can be very unpredictable). A mom may have irregular periods while breastfeeding and may skip some months… a missed period while breastfeeding is normal. Moms may have premenstrual symptoms like abdominal pain or some discharge without any bleeding…this can be a sign that your period will be returning soon…it's best to start taking precautions if you don’t want to fall pregnant. . Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
