45 years old, on birth control pill, how do I now if I'm in pre menopause ?

if you are on birth control pills, how do you now if you are pre menopausal ?
birth control pills should ease the symptoms, aren't they ?

They should but may not. They can change the prescription. That's what they did for me.

on what kind were you before and what kind are you using now ? how old are you ? what problems did you have ?
I'm on trinessa for 12 years now, I have headaches ( mostly around my period, but that's not a rule for it ) and a strange dizziness and shakiness sometimes for almost 3 years now. I'm afraid to switch to a new pill bc of the maybe new side effects.

I'm 67 now and have been on HRT for 10 years. I don't remember what i was on back then. The doctor just changed mine and it helped. But they can still test your FSH. It will need to be done on the last day of the placebo pills before you go back on the active ones. Not as good as not being on them at all but it's the only way while still on them.

I wondered the same things so I just got off of a low-dose birth control pill about 3 weeks ago. The pill gives you a "fake" period every months so you may not know what you're cycles are doing. I figured if things got worse I can always go back but I want to see what's up with my body. I'm almost 50 and I really don't want to stay on birth control pills.
