Re: stopping birth control pill
I am 50 and was on bcps for two and a half years. I went off in Sept and had my levels checked 7 weeks later. My last period was early Sept. My blood work showed I was in meno. I chose not to do anything at all. Well, here it is January and I started my first bioidentical hormone pellets and progestrin pills. The hot flashes were awful, but he night sweats were unbearable. I slept for an hour at a time then, boom sweating like a pig. I couldnt' do it anymore. The vaginal dryness was awful too. I am two weeks into this and feel much much better.
I just thought I would give you something to think about. Feel free to ask me anything else. Good luck.
