Stopped Birth Control Pill - What should I expect?

I have recently decided to go off the birth control pill because of a few things I've read about it. I've been on it for 5 years now, and I'm just curious as to what "side effects" I should expect to experience now that I've stopped taking it... and how long will I feel "out of whack"? I stopped taking it two weeks ago, and haven't had a period since, but I have been having cramping for the past week or so.

Any one else stop taking birth control? Let me know your experiences!
