Exclamation Switching pills?

So I've been taking the pill Diane-35 to get rid of my acne for about 3 months now and recently I had been getting really sick, I had tonsillitis and shingles just a month ago and now I have a yeast infection or something. My gyno recommended I stop taking an oral contraceptive and my mum said I had to stop taking it too so the infection won't come back. I've been taking medication and I've stopped taking Diane... I'm planning to see my boyfriend in a few months and I'd like to be a little more protected than only using a condom.

I was wondering that if I take about a month break off the pill and switch brands will I breakthrough bleed or spot during the first month? When is the correct timing to start the pill again? and what birth control pills are recommended for pms and acne?

help pleasee!
