What is it?

Oral contraceptive pill, containing estradiol and progesterone, prescribed to prevent pregnancy and also to regulate hormone levels through the dramatic fluctuations of perimenopause.

Who is it for?

Recommended for women experiencing symptoms of perimenopause while still having menstrual periods. Low-dose birth control pills not only relieve hot flashes and night sweats but also regulate unruly menstrual cycles and provide secure birth control. The use of birth control pills decreases the amount of menstrual bleeding each month, shortens the number of days of bleeding and produces regular menstrual cycles for women with menstrual irregularities.

How to get it

Prescription required. One of our menopause trained doctors will review your medical history to determine if this is the right treatment for you.

Safety Information

Low-dose oral contraceptive pills are considered safe for most healthy perimenopausal women. They improve perimenopausal symptoms, including menstrual irregularity, heavy menstrual bleeding, menstrual pain, and vasomotor symptoms.

Women who have a history of breast cancer, heart attack or stroke, who smoke, have a history of blood clots in the legs or lungs, or have uncontrolled high blood pressure should not take oral contraceptives.

Suggested Use

Low-dose oral contraceptive pills are suggested for women in perimenopause to even out the menstrual cycle and erratic hormonal surges and crashes. Women in perimenopause can also be unexpectedly fertile, so for those who need it, contraception can come in handy.
