Unexpected bleeding

Patient : I have been on birth control for over a year now. I take it at re same time every night and haven't missed a pill. I am sexually active and occasionally have unprotected sex. Just recently about a week or two after my period ended I got it back. It was really light at first and I didn't really expect anything of it and now I have had it for three weeks now. What is going on? Nothing has really changed in my life. No stress or anything. I'm just concerned. Everything I've seen says cervical cancer or pregnancy. I'm expecting to see a doctor soon but I kind of want a heads up of what could be happened ing. Thanks
Symptoms:  Bleeding. Pains in lower stomach. Headaches.
