In brief: Several choices
Pretty much all of the newer pills and a number of 'older' pills, which have gone generic, will do the trick.
The issues with weight gain and acne were related to some of the original progestins in pills having 'androgenic' side-effects. Talking to your doctor about your concerns and how your cycles are in general will help to find the best pill for you.
