I am 43 and on the birth control patch and have been for a very long time. Is it true that bc will always mask perimenopause symptoms?

In brief: Yes

the patch contains estrogen, and menopause is characterized by estrogen deficiency, which you will not experience if you are receiving supplemental estrogen.
