Can I Stay On The Pill Through Perimenopause To Control My Mood
Is how a patient says they feel, or how someone feels internally, versus how someone's mood appears, which is called "affect." if you say your mood is "happy, " and you appear to be so, we would say that your affect is congruent. If, however, you actually look really angry, we would say your mood is "happy" and ...Read more
I'm 42 on the pill for 19 years. Missed 2 periods now in a row. Took home preg. Test..Negative. Could i be perimenopause? Should i call my gyno?
Normal: Ocp amenorrhea. It is perfectly normal to have very light or absent cycles on long term birth control pill use. It is perfectly safe & not a sign of peri-menopause. In fact, you would have to stop hormone use if you wanted to check for menopause (average age 51-52). Continue your pills, make sure you are not pregnant & enjoy the side effect. Take care. ...Read more
Taking bc pills for perimenopause, just switched to monophasic,
(ortho cyclen). Sleeping poorly before and
now on the pill, will it improve?
Lately i've been having crazy mood swings. I have pcos and im taking pills. Im scared it may be perimenopause or something? Is this likely? Almost 18
Would a monophasic birth control
pill, like ortho cyclen, improve my
perimenopause symptoms better
than a triphasic? Still symptomatic
36 yo female on birth control for years (currently on bc patch). For the past 4 months I have had my period every 2 weeks. I had the same issue when on bc pills. Perimenopause or something else?
Please my anxiety out of control plus irregular periods palpitations and tingly breasts very low mood.is this perimenopause or stress im 49 50 soon?
I am 48. Irregular bleeding for 2014. Exam normal 9-14. Just perimenopause? Off pill 11-13-6-14 per md. Md put me back on 7-14 till now. What to do?
Probably perimenopau: At 48 the most likely cause is the perimenopause. Low dose birth control pills are certainly one way to manage this as is cyclic progestational therapy, or even endometrial ablation or a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD. The choice depends on you and your particular risk factors and type of bleeding (heavy, light, prolonged, or just unpredictable). Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If perimenopause symptoms and
hypothyroid symptoms are similar
and all thyroid tests are in normal
range, taking bc pills, then why
Not all tests done: I would bet your doctor never tested a reverse t3 (liothyronine). Must test free t3 (liothyronine), reverse t3 (liothyronine), free t4. Can almost promise your reverse T3 (liothyronine) will be in the high end of the range and your free T3 (liothyronine) in the low end.. Proof of functional hypothyroidism. Treat possibly with armour thyroid. Also may have some adrenal farigue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
