Stomach-safe Birth Control Pills?

About six months ago, my girlfriend went on The Pill - first Yasmin, then Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo. Both caused mood swings and significant intestinal distress, but her physicians (internist and OBGYN) thought that she'd be safe to stay on, if she could put up with the side effects. This month, as a test, she went off, and she feels hugely better. So, now, we're considering alternatives, and looking for anecdotal advice.

In particular, any ladies here experience stomach problems with the pill, then find greater success with Nuvaring, Progestin-only mini-pills, or something else? Similarly, anyone have to try a slew of different pills to find one they liked?
