Really bad spotting 24/7 because of skipping periods on the pill

When I started my birth control, I was vomiting each time I finished my inactive pills and went back onto the active. After a while, it went away, but it came back after a year. I didn't take any breaks, it's the same exact problem each month. I decided to skip my periods altogether because I'm not sick that way, but I have been spotting for probably over a month now and it's heavy, all the time. I know some spotting is normal, but this seems like too much. Will this eventually go away, or should I just put up with being sick once a month? Any help would be great :)

Happens sometimes when taking your pill that way according to my gynecologist when I started having that issue (except mine was outright bleeding) about a year after she instructed me to take it that way to try to keep my periods light.  She had me go back to having a period every month rather than every 3-4 (I'd decide to go off and have my period if I started spotting because it's easier than spotting or bleeding that whole last month.).  

Talk with your gynecologist about getting on a pill usually intended for this usage if she didn't tell you to do this and/or consider a different pill that might not cause the nausea each time you start the active pills.
