The Pill, Pre-Menopause, and Control

I’ve read some discussions that touch on this topic, but I’m a bit desperate, so I thought I’d create a thread and ask for advice. Has anyone found that going on the pill has helped to increase blood sugar control in the years approaching menopause, when hormones and blood sugars are all over the place?

I understand that the pill increases the blood sugars. This is why the endos don't recommend its use for a long period of time. My endo and my gyno did not agree and I was in the middle. My gyno had suggested for me to go on the pill when I became pre-menopausal. I decided not to use it since my symptoms were bearable. I am now menopausal and have done well without hormone therapy.
