When did you stop bc?

My husband and I want to become ttc later on this year, and I've been on bc for close to 3 years. I've heard all these horror stories about how it messed girls up. (And I plan to ask my doctor as well) but I wanted to know when others stopped bc, and if they had any effects from it after stopping, or if it took longer to conceive because of being on it for a significant amount of time. Just want to hear real stories before statistics from a doctor. Thanks!
