Hello, I am currently taking a birth control called Lomedia

Patient

Q: Hello, I am currently taking a birth control called Lomedia. I was 17 years old when I started taking this pill in May or June of 2014. At that point in my life I weighed about 120 or so. Currently, I am now 18 and have gained 43 pounds. I weight 143 and am very unhappy with this. I started the pill because my periods were constantly back to back and extremely heavy. They would only stop for a number of days and then it would proceed. Should I continue taking my birth control or should I stop?
