what is lactation amenorrhea?

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Lactational amenorrhea is a contraceptive method that is based on the natural postpartum infertility that occurs when a woman is amenorrheic and fully breastfeeding. The infant's suckling suppresses the production of the hormones that are necessary for ovulation. Without ovulation, pregnancy cannot take place. This method acts as a contraceptive in case of females who are exclusively or almost exclusively breastfeeding , have not had menses since giving birth and are less than six months postpartum.
Hope this answers your query.
