In brief: IUD/Implant

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

In brief: The one you use.

Best form of birth control is the one that you will consistently use and use correctly.
If the pill is freq missed then another method such as a nuvaring, implanon, or iud may be better. Most data indicates that weight gain is not generally an issue.
