I had one dose of depo provera and and bled for two months straight. I switched to the pill and bled until the 8th pill. I have two more days until I start the green pills. But I want a break! I can i skip them and be period free for another month?

You can do this once or twice a month. Your period should lessen the longer you are on the pill, You may still bleed at some point during the month. It seems you have alot to bleed, but you can do what you ask and hopefully miss it for another month. It may be heavier next month tho.
