I continued taking the pills but a light bleed started again and has not stopped. What can I do ?

Hi I have had some nonstop light mentual bleeding for 2 1/2 weeks now. My doctor told me to start taking my low dose pill non stop until my period starts. I had a light period of about 3 days and then it stopped for 3. When I started the pill again, I did miss tkaing 2 in the first week because I went on holidays and forgot to bring them. When I came back the 2 days later, I continued takin the pills but a light bleed started again and has not stopped. Does anyone have any suggestions how to stop the bleeding? The doctor suggested this method because I had very heavy periods and he said this can help correct.

I m still taking the active pills. It s been roughly a week now and no sign of stopping. So do I continue taking active pills. Or stop for the 7 days and then resume.

I am 34 yr old.1 week S/p right salpingectomy for 6wk ectopic, beta hcg 5000 presummably caused by copper iud failure. Bleeding stopped yesterday. I am now having odd tingling sensation on right side. Same sensation is faint on left side as well. My question is, is it possible to be close to ovulation 7 days after surgery? Is it normal to have more sensation with ovulation after salpingectomy or miscarriage? I understand mittelschmerz can be felt on right side more often even when left ovary ovulates. Also, is it necessary to do repeat beta hcg post salpingectomy for ectopic? Thank you for your help.
