abnormal bleeding between periods

i've had regular periods since age 11 (im 26) and this month it all seems to have gone haywire!
before my period i was spotting a tiny bit for a couple of days. i came on my period for a week as usual. now a week and a half after i finished my period, it seems i am on my period again.
i feel sickly and have back ache like when im on my period. im on the pill but have been for 10 years, same one, never any problems with it. i have no std's and neither does my partner (both checked recently)
im not sure whether i should wait and see if it happens again or go to the doctors. they'll probably tell me to wait and see anyway!

Sounds like ovarian cysts.  I had those one on each side.  It caused mid cycle heavy bleeding for several months.  They finally resolved on their own.  Have you taken a pregnancy test also just in case?  Good luck to you.

it's ot heavy bleeding as such, it's just like my normal period. i haven't taken a pregnancy test but i think i'd be very unlucky if i was (no missed pills, no illness) and this is the 5th day now. seems a bit too long for implantation bleeding?
