In brief: Whatever works for u

Whether it is the pill or shot matters little as long as you take the pill regularly everyday and obtain your shots q 3 months as needed.
both will work to prevent pregnancy.

In brief: Consider alternative

The IUD used to be limited to ladies with prior pregnancies, but is now commonly used in teens & others who were never pregnant.
They are a bit pricey & initial placement is uncomfortable for a few days, but you can get 5 years of service with minimum effort on your part.
