Taking a break from HBC

Hello lovely VPers,

I've been on ortho tri cyclen lo for over two years and have had a pretty good experience with it.  Before I went on the pill my periods were irregular and heavy (in retrospect my symptoms seemed indicative of PCOS).  Currently I'm not sexually active, nor do I plan to be any time soon, so I don't need them for actual birth control.  Lately, however, I've been wondering whether I should take a break to see what life and my period would be like without hormones.

I'm just starting the placebo week right now.  What should I expect to happen in terms of hormone withdrawal if I don't start another pack next week?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
