    but using hormonal birth control may also be associated with a decreased risk of other kinds of cancers

    I was about to type this out when I'd only read half the article, since this isn't the first piece of research to show this -- but this is something that I was taught as a classic example of weighing the odds. One the one hand, you don't want to be pregnant, and you have a decreased chance of some cancers (ovarian iirc?), but on the other hand there's other cancers that you're more likely to get, along with mood swings, amongst other issues. So it's a risk you need to be willing to face, I guess.
