Brief Answer:
Due to side effect of I-pill.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The irregular bleeding that you are having is due to the high dose hormonal pill- I-pill that you have taken. After taking this pill it is normal to have such period disturbances.
You will have to wait for 2-3 periods for the periods to be regularized on their own. In case the bleeding is heavy then you can consult your gynecologist and have hormonal treatment to stop the bleeding.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Such mild spotting is normal. Just wait for the periods to normalize on their own. It will take 2-3 months for your periods to be normal again.
