intermittent bleeding for 5-6 days?
Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

Since you were on pills for so long, it would be better to get FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone levels checked to see if there is pituitary suppression. This could be the reason for intermittent bleeding for 5-6 days. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
