Best birth control pill to use?
I have not had regular periods, therefore my gynae has prescribed Triphasil. He also tested for PCOS and that result was negative (diabetic test was fine). I still have cysts on my ovaries. I have however gained alot of weight and am battling to lose it. My breasts have also just grown. I am exercising regularly (spinning) and I follow a healthy diet. Any help in telling me which birth control is the best to use will be greatly appreciated.

The type of Pill which suits each person best is individual. There is no one best Pill. If your problem is weight gain, you could try Yasmin.
