Recommended kind of Birth Control?


I am about to start some kind of birth control, and want to know which kind you all recommend.

I'd prefer get-it-and-forget-it birth control, but my mom doesnt want me to get an IUD. I'd really prefer something that wont make me gain a lot of weight (though I know thats a possibility with all forms of hormonal bc).

Which kinds do you all prefer/use, and which kinds do you not like?
