i stopped taking my last pill about 5 days after i started

This answer was rated:

i stopped taking my last pill about 5 days after i started it as it was making me bleed heavily, i then carried on bleeding for 7 days after and then it stopped. After 15 days i started to spot very lightly, a light brown colour which lasted for 9 days and then i had what i think was my period as i started to bleed again, my period ended 3-4 days ago however i am still spotting but this time it is dark brown and doesnt seem to be getting any lighter in colour as if it is going to stop, is this normal, should i be worried?
As per description it appeared not to be normal rather has to be taken seriously.
This may be due to the following reasons like
hormonal imbalance
uterine fibroid or polyp
pregnancy related complications
cervical tumor or polyp
You must see a gynecologist for examination and treatment.
Your blood test like Hb, ESTROGEN, SUGAR ,TSH to be done along with one USG.
Thank you

im 100% sure its nothing to do with pregnancy as i always use protection and i have just had a period, is it more likely to just be my hormones trying to adjust as i came off the pill at the beginning of the year?
I did not say that it is due to pregnancy related only but may be one of the factor.As you are sure about contraception so it can be ruled out.
Yes hormonal imbalance has to be considered which I said before as number one reason.
