Mini pill

Need some advice! Been prescribed the mini pill as I have been suffering painful heavy periods ( flooding, large clots etc) for many years now really. Had scans etc and have a small fibroid but advised to leave alone. Been taking mefemanic acid amd does help a bit. My worry is over the last few years my cycle has shortened from approximately 40 days to 24 - I'm 43. I also suffer with spotty skin and I have quite fine thinning hair. So ... is the mini pill the answer to my problems or is there a better option for me. Didn't feel particularly listened to at doctors so left feeling non the wiser! Many thanks

Sorry meant to say my mum and older sister both went through the menopause by by my age so I'm guessing ( hoping ) I'm on the way!
