Solution

The correct option is D Both A and B
Breastfeeding the baby acts as a natural contraceptive for the mothers because during lactation there is the decrease in the production of FSH and LH by the pituitary gland which is not enough to trigger the process of ovulation. Hence the ovulation and menstruation do not occur which in turn acts as a natural contraceptive for a mother.
So, the correct answer is 'Both A and B'.
