I had side effects with the pill: migraines, weight gain, hypertension. I was otherwise healthy and in my mid-20s; the risks associated with hypertension weren't worth my staying on the pill. I've been off OC for several years now, and now using NFP. Was monitoring body temp for a while, but my cycle is very consistent and we've been doing fine by abstaining when I'm fertile. The calendar method doesn't work well if you're irregular, but ovulation tests and body temp can help you to make a more accurate assessment. I like the idea of not having to take any medication or use a barrier method.
