Did you stop taking HBC, not because you wanted to get pregnant or because you were having problems with it, but just because?

I started taking HBC (Estrostep/Tri-legest Fe) about 7 months ago. It was my first time on any hormones, and I didn't have any noticeable adverse side effects. It did lighten my period every month. I am a single woman in my early twenties and have this desire to start ovulating again. This sounds silly, I know I'm still young, but what if I end up with someone who's not really compatible
I practice safe sex, I get tested regularly and go for yearly pelvic exams. It's just that I'm currently partnerless and am wondering about how going off the hormones would affect me. If you decided to do this, would you advise it? What things changed, for worse or better? Is this a bad idea, if things are going all right? Note I'm particularly looking for experiences that deal with voluntarily going off HBC, not for women who had to because of bad side effects or other medical reasons. However, I welcome any stories! Thank you very much.
