Still taking birth control

I am 48 and period stopped 20 months ago. I will mention to my ob/gyn when I go for annual soon. Can I still take birth control? I doubt I would get pregnant at this age but you never know??? I also read it is not safe to be on birth control pills after 40. I am a non-smoker and relatively healthy woman. Just wondering when is the normal time to go off birth control pills.

Another topic: How common is frequent urination? Urge to go, meaning when you need to go, you got to go. Also I get up twice during the night to go which disrupts my sleep. I don't have anything to drink after 8:30pm. Is this just one of the many things that goes along with menopause??? I don't have a UTI, have a history of kidney stones, but after passed I went for xray, ct scan & cystoscope of bladder and kidneys and nothing wrong with me.

re: Still taking birth control

When I started missing periods on the pill, I switched over to HRT. That was 10 years ago (I'm 67 now) and all is still well. I'd go on it. Am on generic activella.
