What to do because my periods are very irregular. Does anybody know of a birth control that does not cause water retention and weight gain?

In brief: Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or Yasmin should not result in fluid retention since the Progesterone in it has diuretic properties.
However, these may have slightly higher risk for DVT (blood clots) than other BCP. Can also try any pill with 20 ugm of estrogen as opposed to one with 30-35 ugm. For more info www.askyourgynecologist.org
