Birth control help

Hi, I've been taking these pills from my doctor for almost 6 months now. Im supposed to get my period every 3 months because of this pill... I have been bleeding or spotting for almost 5/6 months I've been on it .. I'm getting sick of the bleeding my dr all she seems she wants to do is just change my pill.. she hasn't given me one exam yet and she's changed my pill three times in a year... I'm nervous that because of all the pills and all the bleeding that it'll cause me from not being able to have kids... I'm scared and no one seems to have an answer for this.. iknow I'm not pregnant haven't had sex for almost 6 months. The pill is new and is called jolessa

I had my pill changed every 3 months for about a year and a half and now I'm looking at using the Mirena, so might be worth exploring other options or other types of pill. Some people's bodies just don't get on with it and if you've been bleeding lots the it's probably in your best interest t change it if it's been longer than 3 months. And I doubt the bleeding would affect your fertility at all so fingers crossed you get your answer soon x
