Does birth control cause weight gain ?

Ok so this guy friend and I are getting closer, and if we start to go out I want to go on birthcontrol 1.) Because lighter periods, and skin help 2.) for other obvious baby reasons. My mom would never let me, but I really would feel very comfortable if I knew I were on it. Do I have to go to the doctor and get a prescription or can I just buy it from walmart ? Also is there anything I need to know about birthcontrol? Does it cause weight gain?
