Birth control and side effects?

I have been on the pill for nearly a year. Before taking the pill I had the Depo shot which gave me bad side effects and basically spotted the whole time. Now on the pill I expected it would take some time for my body to adjust. I was spotting on/off for a good 6 months, during that time I was skipping the placebo pills. I began taking the placebo pills in hopes to stop the spotting. It did work for about two months except now I’ve been spotting straight for over a month even after having a period. I don’t understand what’s going on and I had taken this type of birth control years ago and never had an issue. I just want to know if anyone else has these issues and if they ever found answers ?

    Go to doctors and get a different brand of pill as this one doesn't agree with you

    The answer is that this pill is not strong enough to control your hormones. BC pills come in different strengths, you need a stronger brand.

    Talk to your Doctor.
