I was thinking of going on the pill for my acne, period regulation and just for some extra safety. I just wanted to know if there is any risk of future infertility with the pill? I am not sure what might be a good brand to lean towards?

Taking the pill doesn't cause lingering infertility after someone stops taking it. It might take a while for their menstrual cycles to regulate, but fertility is not affected.
What brand you would take is actually something you'd talk to your doctor about, since a doctor has to prescribe the birth control pill in order for someone to get it.
