According to the information you reported, you might be experiencing menorrhagia. One of the most frequent causes for menorrhagia includes a hormonal imbalance. The birth control pills your doctors recommended contain hormones that might help you stop the bleeding. These hormones can affect your weight, but it is considered as a side-effect, because the bleeding is the serious problem that has to be solved.
About having children, please do not jump to conclusions. The hormonal imbalance can be regulated with proper therapy and often the treatment is good enough to prepare the woman for conception.
