Opinions on the Birth Control Pill and long term use

I'm looking for others' opinions on the pill and its long term use. I hear pros and cons all the time, but I'm wondering what others think about it. Has anyone made the decision to stay on the pill or get off it? If so, what were the reasons behind your decision?

One of the complications that I was not aware of when I was younger is increased incidence of depression.

Didn't know that. I've always heard the controversy over breast cancer. Also the concerns w/ blood clots and stroke, and higher incidents of problems if you smoke.
