It is 5 months after delivery of a child. My period is started. I am lactating my child. Is there something 2 worry about. Will it affect the quantity of milk.

Hello .there is absolutely nothing to worry about. No it will not effect lacation.
Not to worry lybrate-user. Starting periods while feeding the baby will not effect the quality of the milk. Make sure you use contraception to avoid pregnancy during this time.
