Birth control frustration

I am 40 years old and take BCPs because of irregularity. I've had my tubes tied and didn't get my period for almost a year afterwards, so I went back on the pill. It used to be fine, but lately, my period is coming earlier and earlier. Now, I'm spotting and it's only been 2 weeks since the last one. I'm thinking it's because the hormone dose is too low. The pill is called Junel 1/20. I don't have an appointment with my ob/gyn until July. I want to just stop taking the pill, but am afraid that NOT having a period will be bad. Seriously, I'm at the end of my rope - this is very disrupting! Does anyone have any advice about the risks of stopping th pills mid-pack and/or not getting a period once I stop?
