Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that, irregular bleeding is common when changing or discontinuing birth control methods.  I would also recommend that you take a pregnancy test.  If that was negative, I would advise watchful waiting.  If you don't want a baby, you should probably start a new method soon!
Good luck!
