I have been on Aviane low dose pills for 7 years. I am 51. I got off for 2 months last winter to get my fsh levels tested. They were 35. So I went back on them. I stopped in mid September now, 5 weeks ago, because my blood pressure was too high. During these times, I have not had a period nor any symptoms.
Could I be in menopause? What I want is to be over menopause.
My gyno uses 34 as the threshold for menopause so according to that you would have begun. The bcp force you to have a period. I'm surprised they didn't put you on HRT instead of going back on bcp. And it can take several years to complete menopause though no period for 12 months is the medical threshold for saying you are menopausal.
