Sorry to hear that your best friend has been talking about you and your relationship behind your back, especially if it was during a rough patch. It's understandable that you would feel like you trust her less.

Is it possible to talk to your best friend? Perhaps let her know that when you tell her things about your relationship, you would prefer it for her to respect your privacy and not tell others. Then you could ask her to keep this in mind in the future. You might want to try to avoid blaming your best friend as that may cause more problems further on down the line (and also, you'd have to make sure that you have all the facts and know for sure that it is your best friend talking behind your back and not someone else).

The other alternative is to lessen how much you tell your best friend. While it's understandable that if you were going through a rough patch with your boyfriend, you might want to talk to someone about it. But it can help to find a balance between sharing what is necessary and not oversharing, while also sharing only with people you trust.
