perimenopause and trinessa birth controll pills

I've been on trinessa for 10 years now, and I'm not sure but it looks like I'm in perimenopause ?? I'll be 43 years old in 2 months and I think i had a couple hot flashes and heart palpitations in the last 2 weeks. i have these headaches, dizziness, shaking on and off since last june ( I was in the ER for that ) never thought they are MAYBE perimenopause signs ?
my ob/gyn told me on one of my visits earlier, that I'm not suppose to have menopause symptoms bc I'm on birth controll pills, but maybe they are not the " right " ones ? I mean the hormones in them maybe too high or something ?
my friend said she is on microgestin fe ( same age, same reason )
anyone with some answers? thanks

Re: perimenopause and trinessa birth controll pills


As we age are hormones change and perhaps the bc pills that you are on need to change too. Have your ob/gyn check your hormone levels to see how they are. Your symptoms seem to me to be the beginning of peri. Hang in there because it can be a rough ride.

Hope this helps,
