In brief: It depends
Again there are so many variables that go into a decision process to decide what is "best".
You really have to work that out with a doctor who knows all your habits, or medical history and your lifestyle. Maybe a non-hormal barrier method would be better for you (there are at least 4 different kinds) maybe you would be best served with a non-hormonal iud? Maybe you abhor those options. Ask ur dr.

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
