Hi Dalin,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Breastfeeding itself can actually be one way to delay menstruation. When breastfeeding, the level of the hormone prolactin will increase. This hormone has a secondary effect, in addition to increasing milk production, can also suppress the production of hormones that regulate menstruation, especially estrogen and progesterone. For this reason, many mothers who give birth and breastfeed their babies with breast milk do not menstruate for months, even up to more than 1 year.


But indeed, just breastfeeding does not necessarily guarantee 100% that you will not experience menstruation. If there are certain interests that require you to postpone menstruation, for example for the sake of worship or certain events, you should visit a doctor or obstetrician directly. In the medical realm, it is possible to delay menstruation by administering certain types of special drugs, for example hormonal drugs, anti-bleeding drugs, and so on. Consult openly with your doctor what are the reasons you want to postpone menstruation so that the doctor can evaluate, whether you really are the right candidate to get treatment, or not.


Hope this helps ...
