I don't think that anyone is completely sure how it works, just that you have to feed for *at least* 5 months and that the longer you feed, the more protected you are. This would lead me to think that your periods returning won't necessarily effect how protected you are.
Most women's periods come back after they start to wean onto solids, yet continuing to breastfeed can continue to protect you.4.3% for every year of feeding
