Good birth control pill?

I was going to get Mirena but after reading TONS of stories, I've decided against it (DH read about the wires poking and he begged me not to get it lol). I had the shot after my son and it made me retain water REALLY BAD and my periods were REALLY heavy, so I don't want that again. I MIGHT consider the Nuva ring. But I'm thinking about just getting on the pill at the moment. So can anyone recommend a good pill to look into?

The nuva ring is great, just some people have things against it because they don't like the fact of putting it in there, and taking it out.  It's a "gross" factor, lol.  Are you breastfeeding?  I was on the mini pill, NorQ, and it worked nicely while I was breastfeeding.  And then after I was done BF, and a few months later, I got on the OrthoTricyclen Lo, and it's great so far.  I just started it a week ago, but it's been really nice, no ill effects at all.

I have had my mirena for 2 1/2 yrs and have had no issues whatsoever. Don't know anything about the pills as I've never taken the pill. I did like the nuva ring, though.
