Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

The doctor is right. Being overweight is, in your case, the most likely cause of your irregular period.

The birth control pills contain hormones that will keep your cycle regular. For 3 weeks you take the hormonal pills and the last week you take a kind of "filler pill" for a week. During that week you have a period. The when you finish the pack of pills you start on the next pack the very next day. So each pack of pills last for a month.
But aside from all of that. This does not fix the real cause: being overweight.

I suggest that you focus on a healthy diet and regular exercise. This alone will help your body reach a hormonal balance on its own without taking the hormones.
