OBGYN - Birth Control Issue

Patient : I am a 22 year old female i recently just change my birth control due to insurance. I was on reclipsen and I changed to springtec. The first month of taking springtec I had a normal period and continued to the second month. Although on birth control i had a scare and took plan B because I had been no taking it correctly and missing days.I took the plan b on january 15th and was supposed to start my period on the 16th but did not start it until the 20th. My period was a little light but the bleeding continued until the 23rd. Now since the 23rd I've been spotting to the point where I have to wear a tampon everyday and cannot be sexual active because I'm embarrassed. What do you think this is? Should I go back to my old birth control? Thank you.
