Patient : I am 42 and my cyle is only coming every 4 months or so. I also am having yeast infections and hives around the time when I should be getting my periods. My dr. thinks it is menopause and wants me to go on a low dose pill as he doesn't want me to go through it this young. I am concerned with the risks of the pill cancer or stroke as I have 5 young children 12 -3 yrs of age. What would you suggest?
