Unusual: If you have been taking this birth control pill for 5 months without a problem, and now suddenly have bleeding for 3 weeks straight, then the possibilities include:
1. Normal side effect of the pill related to extreme thinning and fragility of the uterine lining
2. Pregnancy - check a test
3. The presence of something like a uterine polyp
this is a great discussion to have with your doctor.
