Any other pill options?

I'm currently taking cerezette as contraception. I've Brent using it for approx 9 months since having DS2. The problem is, I'll have 3-4 weeks with no bleeding then 7-10 days heavy bleeding (normal period for me) but then have light bleeding for a further 3-4 weeks with one or two days with no bleeding.

Then it starts again with 3-4 week no bleeding. I'm fed up of it now as its really painful for the first week (again normal for me) but its also painful the third week of bleeding.

Is there a different POP I can have? I can't have the combined pill anymore as I have migraines (shame as it was fantastic). I've also had a bad experience with the coil and piled on weight with depo so want to stick with the pill if I can.

I think there are 4 different types of mini pill. I had femulen and micronor before ending up with cerazette.
