I'm of the opinion that women should NEVER use birth control pills. The hormones in these pills are not natural to the body and can wreak all sorts of havoc. I've never been the same since using them in the mid-80's. Do all the research you can on natural ways to bring your hormones back into balance. There are many herbs that will encourage the body to return to normal functioning. Cleansing can help too. Especially work on the bowel and liver since these organs affect the hormonal balance by eliminating hormones from the body.
