making the switch...

The time has come for me to get back on birth control. At this time, I cannot afford the more expensive methods, such as an IUD or Implanon.


However, I have been on the pill twice (Alesse and Ortho-tricyclen, I think) and it went pretty badly. I have also been on OrthoEvra three times, and that went even worse. I just got incredibly sick on all of them...for example, the patch made me throw up all night every first Monday (after reapplying the patch after the week off). The pills weren't much better.


Now I'm just scared to pick a new kind, because I don't know enough about the science to know what to avoid or what might be a good pick...


Any help? I was vaguely considering Depo or maybe NuvaRing, or even another kind of pill as long as it was different enough from the two I tried already.
