Birth Control Pill Queries

I feel like my birth control pill (Camila) is disagreeing with me. I'm up ten pounds*I switched from my old pill, which no one seems to carry anymore. I went through a rough transition where they kept switching up brands on me claiming it's technically the same formula, but every month was a physical and emotional wild card.

This has only been in the past year, since I've started going to a gyno that isn't Family Planning, and I feel like I'm just not getting the same care. I don't know if I should just quit BC altogether (I've been on for 7-ish years at this point and am starting to worry that I'm messing so much with my hormones and it seems contradictory to object to all other medications but not this) or just keep searching. I hate hate hate condoms (who likes 'em?) but am not 100% sure I'm ready to have a lil beebee or trust the Natural Family Planning that some of my friends do.

Any Birth Control advice/stories out there? I was on TriLevlen for about 5 years and loved it, but have yet to find anything that agrees with me like it did. Sorry this is a boring post, here's this cute stuff to make you like me:
