"Irregular" period after birth control

I went off b/c in February (I was on NuvaRing). Since then, my periods have been a little out of whack.

First, they were coming EXTREMELY far apart. Like 6-8 weeks. Now, they're back to a 35 day cycle, but really strange. I'll spot for a day, nothing for a day, bleed heavily for two days, stop for a few hours, and continue to bleed heavily for another 3 days before tapering off.

My OBGYN said it was nothing to worry about but...I'm concerned anyway. My periods always ran like clockwork.

Is this a result of the b/c? Has anyone else ever had these symptoms?
