Birth control help

I'm just so upset at myself at the moment. I've been sick with a runny nose and a cough which has led me to being tired. I should have just rescheduled.

I've put this pap smear off for a few months because my old mid wife left and, other than that specific woman, I hate going to the doctor in general. She was a very nice woman who cared about her patients and gave out free samples of birth control pills. Today none of that was there. The doctor was rushed with me and made me feel like I was a waste of her time. I have been on Yaz, Yasmin, a generic version of Yasmin, Ortho Cyclen Lo, and Ortho Cyclen. All have made me an emotional mess (more specifically the Yas/Yasmin ones were the craziest). I've been off of Ortho Cyclen for only about three months now. I just had wanted to talk to the doctor and see if there was possibly a specific amount of [either hormone in the pills] that might have been the cause behind my mood swings. The doctor said it was most likely I'd be that way on all birth control pills and didn't even bother looking into it. The thing is that there are so many other birth control pills out there that I haven't even tried. The doctor just up and prescribed me what I had been on last (Ortho Cyclen) and didn't even give me any samples (my mid wife would give a sample each time I'd visit her).

What do you do when you feel a doctor's rushing you out the door?
What should I do about getting different birth control pills. Should I even try or am I doomed to be some crazy woman when on them?
