Birth control worth it?

So I’ve been with my boyfriend for a couple years. For our birth control we use condoms...he also pulls out with a condom. We are young and in college and aren’t ready for children. I have always thought about birth control but not sure it’s worth all the risks. For those of you on it, what type and how did it affect your body? I am educated and not asking a dumb question and I know I should be on it if I don’t want children right now but I am also extremely anxious!!!!
