Unfortunately, choosing an appropriate contraceptive pill will be based largely on trial and error. I am personally using Yaz and i haven't experienced any negative side effects, however i had to go through the process of looking at different hormone combinations and strengths before finding a pill that works for me. The side effects of most contraceptive pills are very similar. My personal preference is lower dose monophasic pills. But you'll need to ask your GP about your options
