Hello. Sometimes especially when just starting birth control you get breakthrough bleeding. Other times the hormone your using is not strong enough and either the dosage or the actual hormone itself needs to be changed. If you're period stays irregular, it is most likely because the hormone is not strong enough for you. Make an appointment with your GYN and they will address it
