Birth Control Pros & Cons? (pills only please)

I have been taking Ocella (Generic for Yasmin) for about a year now. Overall it has been great! It completely took away any signs of PMD, so no crazy mood swings or depressions prior to my period. It reduced my period to just 3 days. Love that! Negative results I have gained about 15 pounds over the course of the last year. About 4 months or so after I started taking it I started noticing these weird chest pains. Very shape pains. If I lie on my back at any given time I feel like I am being chocked. It feels like there is no blood or oxygen going to my head. That never did that before taking Ocella. Now recently I have noticed that when I go up a flight of stairs my chest begins to hurt mid-way. I have seen commercials about a warning for Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella users but I have always ignored it until now. I need to switch to something else. Please give me pros & cons of your current birth control PILL. No other form please!
