Welcome to ehealthforum.
If your periods are regularly coming every two weeks, then it is a possibility that the menstrual cycle had reduced down in length after your abortion and the birth control pill use. Starting and stopping the birth control pills in between is of no use. The bleeding that you have in between your pill pack could be the breakthrough bleeding. Do not stop taking the pills, once you start a pack finish it by taking 1 pill a day at a scheduled time.
Consider getting a thorough evaluation done by your gynecologist along with hormonal level analysis and ultrasound scan to see if there are any underlying abnormalities that need treatment. Request your gynecologist to start you on a low dose hormonal contraceptive to minimize the side effects.
Take care.
