I am in perimenopause, and my doctor is suggesting I take low-dose birth control pills to help control my symptoms. It seems so odd now that I've
finally gotten to a place where I barely have to worry about pregnancy, to be taking the pill! Is this a common recommendation? How will it affect my hormones later on? Does it mean I'll be in perimenopause longer?
Would love to know anyone's experience with this.
