Peri symptoms while on birth control pill?

Thanks for the feedback.
Can anyone else out there tell me if they experienced peri symptoms while on the BC pill? I quit taking mine for a month to see if maybe the symptoms got worse - they sure did. However, as I said before these symptoms were there while on the pill. One of you lovely ladies pointed out that who's to say my hormones were even close to being balanced while on the pill. I would just like to know if anyone else out there had these issues while being on the ppill and just didn't realize they were moving into Peri.
The other thing I have noticed in this journey is my hair falling out like a freakin waterfall. I came into my office this morning and looked at the floor, wondering why it looked dirty. Yeah, it was the pile of hair that has shed out of my head! I am surprised I am not bald right now.
The sweating has come one too. I break out into sweats out of nowhere and I am drentched.
Has anyone had issues with headaches and blurry vision in one eye? I have had this off and on for 6 years too. That is what freaked me out about MS to begin with, but the Neuros are inistant this is NOT MS. Well, at least that is some good knews if the dorks are right.....who knows anymore.

Re: Internal trembling and shaking

Delmar, it is your hormones causing these problems. I have expierenced peri symptoms while on the pill but mine are some better since being on the pill except my hot flashes seem to be getting worse. I have been in peri for a while and did not realise that was what was going on with my body while being on the pill. I do have headaches like you mentioned but not blurry vision in one eye even if I did I wouldn't know because I wear bifocals anyway. I do break into sweats like you said, that is what I am calling a hot flash. When that happens I get drenched in sweat.

Re: Peri symptoms while on birth control pill?

I did and my doctor change my bcp. There are dozens of formulas and she switched me to one with more estrogen. You might inquire about that. In two weeks, all my symptoms were gone!!!
