Mini pill mayhem!

Patient

Q: Hi i have been on the combined pill for a good year and a half for extreamly bad periods, being very heavy and painful resulting in lack of consciousness , nausea , lethargic and quite anemic. This helped massivly. The past 2 months i have changed to the progesterone only pill instrd of having the hormonal implant. I was told i wasnt to experiance any bleeding and i wont have a period as i shall not have a 7day break. The first 2 weeks were continuous bleeding, then no bleeding at all followed by horrendous headaches and a few sickness cases. Now i am having a mixture of dark and now red blood on a slow but unhelpful flow yet not enough to use a tampon. I am going away in a couple of days and wont be able to go to my doctors yet i dont want to bleed because i want to be able to wear swim wear ect. I have some old pack of my combined pill should i take this while i am away? Or should i wait and continue to struggle. Do you know what the problem may be?
