Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that most of the low dose pills should be safe unless you are a smoker.  If you smoke and quit you can still take them.  I'm assuming you don't.  I tend to like the LoEstrin or Ortho Novum products or MIrcette and tend to stay away from the Desogestrel containing products.  ALSO any of the progestin only pills should be OK although they have a little bit reduced effectiveness when compared with the standard pills.
Hope this helps!
