At 49, your estrogen levels are much higher than previous decades of life, and the degree of estrogen withdrawal symptoms at ovulation and pre-menstrual times is exaggerated by the drop in estrogen to zero after being at a higher peak. Low dose oral bcps can regulate this (if there are no contraindications) and you will pass through menopause without these symptoms.
