Scared about Birth Control...

I'm 20 years old and confused on birth control. I was the shot when I was 17 but it made me gain a bit of weight (from ~150lbs to 170lbs) and I had spotting for almost 2.5 months straight. About a month after I got off of it I started noticing a few dark hairs on my chin and a significant weight gain *was progressive over 2months but still rather fast* (from ~170lbs - 215lbs). Which freaked me out a bit. Especially since my family has a history of PCOS. For the past year or so more dark hairs have come up on the jaw line on my cheeks and chin and a few on my breasts. Also I haven't been able to lose the weight I gained while on the shot and directly after I got off it. I'm really starting to freak out because I hate doctors and nurses and well GPs of all sorts...

I've been looking into some estrogen birth controls thinking that could help but I have no idea which ones are decent (maybe zovia???) I'm not very sexually active as it really is not a fun/interesting/exciting act but was thinking more to balance the hormones if that is what's going crazy *my best guess*. Any suggestions?
