Progesterone post-menoapusal but on pill and have periods

I think that sounds good but I'm perplexed because (1) I'm on the contraceptive pill and have a regular full on 4 day period each month and (2) I'm only 48 and my mother was 54 when she had her last period (she wasn't on the pill). Would love to hear your knowledge please

    I'm puzzled by this as post menopausal surely means you would not need to be on the contraceptive pill? Young to be post menopausal , when i got tested it was oestragen levels showed i was post menopausal? Not sure if this helps? exclaim
