Raynaud's syndrome and birth control ring

Currently my husband and I use condoms as our only method of birth control, we both want to find and alternate method.
I was interested in the birth control ring until , upon more research, I found that hormonal methods of birth control such as the pill can worsen symptoms of Raynaud's syndrome (a condition that I suffer from badly).
A few articles I have found advise against using the pill or patch etc with Raynaud's , I was wondering if anyone here has experience with it.
I also suffer from cluster headaches, some headache medication I have taken has had very bad side effects , possibly due to the Raynaud's.
If the pill/ring/patch are not a good idea, does anyone have a reccomendation for birth control not involving condoms that is as reliable.
