This complication occurs in less than 5% of cases and would be an accepted complication, i.e. not the fault of the doctor. Norplant is also hormonal and would have similar effects to the injectable. Your only other options are Microval, which is not as safe as the combined pill, and the Mirena, though you may not want another IUCD fitted. If your family is complete, you could consider sterilisation.
