A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Breast feeding prevents ovulation from occurring and thus prevents periods. This is to allow a spacing between the pregnancies and prevent them from causing problems to the mother.

Understand that this is normal and that you need not worry. Do see a Doctor if you develop a new symptom or if your child gets sick. It is safe to take the I pill if you are not breast feeding at the moment.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
