Convoluted Birth Control Pill Question

I take Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo birth control pills and accidentally started a new pack the day I was supposed to start the sugar pills. I've only taken one so far. While I can keep going and just skip my period if necessary, I'd rather not for timing reasons. What would the effects be of: A) Taking one pill and then stopping B) Not taking the first pill of the new pack next week?

Lowest-risk combination method of [condom + (insert preferred non-IUD, non-hormonal contraceptive here)]

Currently I live the starving graduating college student life and had to leave my previous job for an unpaid internship this semester. In addition to having no steady income, my family's new insurance policy covers zero of my prescriptions costs. This is making me consider alternative contraceptions that are: - Affordable to a rather strict budget, and - Non-IUD or hormonal-based What are your nominations for the lowest-risk contraceptive alternatives I could use in tandem with condoms, that are most affordable?

How do I know whether I'm depressed, or if it's birth control?

I've started hormonal birth control (Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo) for the first time, and am currently on my third day. I've heard/read of the accompanying depression and mood swings. When can I expect side effects, so that I can assess myself and decide whether or not to continue with the pill? What sort of red flags should I look out for, in case I don't realize I'm being depressive, mood-swingy, or sans sex drive? [more inside]
