What type of birth control is better?

I have decided its time to change my birth control. I was on the patch for about 6 years and I did like it. But I got a job working outside so I decided to switch to the pill. I have been on the pill for 2 years and don't really like the pill as much. Its not remembering to take it, I have alarm for that to remind me. Its the point that since I have been on the pill I'm dry a lot down there and my sex drive became nothing. Also I will sometimes have 2 periods instead of just 1 a month. That to me gets very old and upsetting.
I know I don't want the ring, because I don't feel comfortable about putting that in my body. I have been thinking a lot about the birth control shot.
I was wondering if people who have had the shot liked it or not.
