It’s not uncommon for physicians to prescribe birth control pills to control perimenopause symptoms—especially heavy menstrual flow and irregular periods. This is a trend that I find quite disturbing, particularly when there are so many safer ways to control symptoms of premenopause.

Common side effects of birth control pills closely resemble PMS symptoms: anxiety, nausea, bloating, breast tenderness, and depression. And long-term use has been associated with increased risk of blood clots, liver disease, and breast cancer.

If your doctor prescribes birth control pills to control your perimenopause symptoms, consider trying some of the more natural approaches I’ve discussed throughout my blog. Early menopause is a natural part of life—and there are safe, effective ways to control its symptoms!
