Breakthrough Bleeding/IUD & the pill

Hello! Quick question...making this bullet-form.
-had the IUD inserted in June of 2011, bled for a few months, then stopped completely.
-began bleeding in early April, called the dr, they prescribed pills along with the IUD for one month
-had a new sexual partner in mid-April (we're both tested and had negative results prior to being sexually involved)
-stopped the birth control at the end of the pack
-began bleeding again, they prescribed another pack
-stopped that pack, began bleeding again
-currently spotting enough to be annoying, having cramps, headaches, etc.
-can't get to the doctor, so they've been prescribing it over the phone
-also, I have a bleeding disorder (von Willebrands disease)

Is it harmful to be taking two forms of birth control? While on the pill, I feel so much better. No cramps, no headaches. But if I'm only on one form (used to be on just the pill, always bled, and with just the IUD, I'm spotting still, a year later)
My aunt had breast cancer and I'm terrified this will kill me.
I'm going crazy, but I just want this yucky feeling to go away. And everytime the spotting almost stops, I have sex, and it starts right back up again.
Wah! Help?
