Going off HBC

I am on the HBC Seasonique. I have been on birth control since I was 15 and I'm about to turn 23. From age 15 on I have suffered from depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and an eating disorder. I've been doing a lot of research about HBC and I feel like maybe I should do a trial of not being on it to see if that has contributed to any of my issues.

Is this a bad idea? I'm actually quite scared since I've been on it so long... I like knowing when my period is going to come. Also, because of the ED, I'm scared that I will lose my period without the pill which would cause some bone loss (which I already have some of).

I finished my pack on Sunday and haven't started the new one yet, since I know if you are going off the pill, it's best to do so after finishing the pack. How long does it normally take for the hormones to get out of my system? Any advice would be great :-) Thanks
