Hormonal contraception ("the pill") is one of the most-researched methods of birth control, and it's been shown to be very safe, even for long-term use. There is no good evidence that it causes infertility or difficulty conceiving - some women may have difficulty getting pregnant immediately after stopping the pill, but only because it generally takes your body awhile to get back into a regular cycle after you've come off it.

There are pills that are estrogen-free (commonly called the "mini-pill") and whether that formulation is best for you is something that should be discussed with your doctor. We also have a couple of articles on the combination pill - containing both estrogen and progesterone - and the progesterone-only pill:

Combined Oral Contraceptives (The Pill)
Progesterone-Only Oral Contraceptives (Minipills)
