Bleeding question

Hi! I just joined here, after having read many great threads, and I've got a question of my own.

I took various generics of Alesse continuously for 7 years, but then began having a breakthrough bleed the week before I was actually supposed to have my withdrawal bleed. If I took the week after that off, I'd have a painful and long 2 week period. My gynecologist switched me to generic Loestrin 1.5/30 and at first it happened, too, but then went away. It's been a year and a half now, but now I'm having bleeding that doesn't always come out but has been definitely happening, and now she's switched me to having as many periods as I feel comfortable with because those have been flaring my IBS hard. One of my friends said she had this kind of issue before and she took 2-3 months off hormones and when she went back on them, she had no issues, and I've seen doctors online recommend this, too. Is it likely to work, or am I dooming myself to stomach issues and awful cramps if I do this, and maybe I should see my doc again? Thank you so much in advance!
