It depends. I'm fully direct latching on demand + pumping but my menses came right after lochia ended. I basically bleed for entire two months. However it did not affect my supply. Many have said that menses does affect breastmilk supply however will regain back after menses have ended. Certain people rely on eating supplements to maintain supply during menses period.

Do you mean breastfeeding? Usually if you breastfeed your menses won’t come and if you stop breastfeeding then the menses will come.

Hi... if you’re breastfeeding, you won’t have menses. Once you stop breastfeeding, your menses will return
