I'm 46 and have been taking low dose birth control pills for several years. Roughly 8 out of my last 10 periods have been unusually heavy, and some have started two to four days before they should/normally have.
My doctor doesn't think there's any cause for concern. She also thinks I should continue taking my low dose birth control as a way to ease potential pre-menopause systems. I'm concerned about the change in my periods and I'm wondering if I will know if pre-menopause has begun if the pills are "masking" its onset. What are your thoughts?View Thread
