Birth Control Pills

One of my doctors wants to put me on birth control to help with my acne (oh the wonders of being 14), and I was just wondering what sort of side effects people here have experienced. I've heard all sorts of things- expanding breasts, weight gain, terrible periods, much easier periods, nausea, mood swings, ect.

I think it really depends on the person. I know when I was on them I had to try three different kinds before I found one that didn't make me depressed. I went off them alltogether a while ago. Just make sure you talk to your doctor about anything you notice. Some people do really well on them and others don't. I stopped taking them mostly because I wanted my body to do it's thing naturally and not be regulated by synthetic hormones, but in all honesty the last pill I was only gave me the good side effects.
