In brief: IUD/Implants > Pills

Regardless of your age, blood pressure, family history, or reactions to other birth control, the most effective and safest methods of birth control are long-acting progestin-only methods, such as the implant or the hormonal IUD, which decrease rates of endometrial cancer and decrease bleeding.
They're safe, reversible, and don't affect weight gain/mood. They're almost as good as getting sterilized

The best birth control pills are monophasic pills that have the same amount of ethinylestradiol and of a progestin in them not for 21, but for 24 days.

In brief: The one you like

The best birth control pill is the one that you like and the one you will take every day.
Dont worry too much about the different brands. Find one that is covered well on your insurance with a low copay and see how you do.
