I'm on birth control and am in my mid 40s. I have had some of the mood swings associated with perimenopause, and occasional insomnia, but I'm not
sure whether to attribute them to perimenopause or not. How do you know if you're in perimenopause when you're on birth control?
It seems like the first, primary symptom of perimenopause is one of erratic periods, but I won't have that symptom as long as I'm on birth control due to the hormones in the medicine -- my periods are still regular. Yet it also seems that this is a time of life when I want to be listening to my body and knowing what stage I'm in.
Anyone have any experience with this?
