Contraception and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Hi all,
I'm looking at going back on birth control. Previously I've been on Yasmin but since that time, I've been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. At the moment, my IBS causes me to have diahrrea maybe once or twice a week with normal to soft bowel movements in between. I know they say that if you're on the pill and have diahrrea, you should use an alternate method of contraception because it can interfere with the absorption of the pill. I don't want to have to use condoms everytime I have some diahrrea (which is fairly frequently!) - any suggestions for other contraception ideas? Anyone else with IBS have some experiences to share?
Thanks!
