Unpaid leave on H-1

What is the effect of unpaid leave for sick time or maternity leave on H1B status? I had to take about 3 months of unpaid leave and back to work for about two months now. I will have to file extension of stay H1B end of the year and want to know if it effects the extension of stay approval.

ANSWER: 

As long as the leave is normal, or supported by documented necessity, you should have no problem.
