Heavy Periods in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted August 6, 2007 · Report to Admin Birth control pills can't be good for you, can they? My gynecologist put me back on them to alleviate symptoms of premenopause - night sweats, insomnia, killer PMS, cramps. In the years before menopause, it's not unusual for hormone levels to go haywire, causing all kinds of problems. He intends for me to stay on them indefinitely. My periods got lighter and lighter and now are pretty much non-existant, though I still experience some montly symptoms. I asked him about the periods stopping and he said it was normal. Recently, I visited my general practitioner, who practices integrative medicine - allopathic and alternative mix - who I really trust. I asked him about being on bc pills until menopause and he said it was fine and actually probably a good thing for me, since I'm struggling with all the digestive issues.
