"Favorite" birth control?


I was on birth control for a year about 3 years ago but stopped because after switching 2-3 times to different pills I was still having awful side effects (frequent yeast infections, bleeding after sex, painful sex, spotting, etc). I originally went on it to regulate my periods but the side effects were just so bad it wasn't worth it to me anymore. After stopping the BC my periods stayed on a regular schedule but after about 9 months went back to being irregular.

I'm thinking of trying BC again because I'm tired of never knowing when my period is going to come and being paranoid that I might be pregnant Every time my period is late.

What birth control (type- pill, shot, ring, etc- and name) do you guys use and what side effects have you had?
