In brief: Basically any

All birth control pills have some positive metabolic effects that improve pcos.
Some of the progestins are slightly preferred but if you find one is better than the other and not on the "list" don't worry. They all help. The better progestins are norgestimate (ortho cyclen nuva ring etc), desogestryl (desogen), and drosperinone (yaz).

In brief: Any

Almost any ocp will be effective for treating pcos.
There is no particular benefit to using Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) over any other ocp.
