Thank you for your question.
Many women get unscheduled bleeding after taking ipill but it doesn't usually last beyond that cycle. Your current irregular bleeding is not because of ipill but could be because of stress, poor diet, weight gain or loss etc. please see your gynaecologist for advice regarding reliable regular contraception in addition to condoms as the ipill is not intended to be used instead of regular contraception but only in an emergency such as condom burst or missed contraceptive pills. The failure rate is much higher than regular contraception. Your menstrual calendar will help the doctor decide if you need some tests before treatment. Also if you had unprotected sex you may be at risk of a sexually transmitted infection which can also cause unscheduled bleeding. Your gynaecologist can help to rule this out too.
best wishes
