irregular cycles vs. birth control

hello everyone! just wanted some advice. I have irregular cycles never really went to the Dr for it however my bf and I are trying to conceive soooo I went on to the Dr. the Dr gave me birth control to help regulate my cycle but my boyfriend doesn't want me to take them.... advice anyone please is there something else I can take besides the birth control and has anyone had any bad experiences I've already started taking prenatal vitamins. I'm just not sure which way to go. I have an follow up appointment coming up.
