I've been taking Yaz for over four years and I haven't had any trouble with it until recently. For two packs (months) in a row I skipped the reminder pills and immediately started a new pack to skip my period. I've done this for one pack before and not had any trouble but I think doing this two months in a row was a mistake. I have now been bleeding to some degree (either spotting or heavier more period-like bleeding) for three weeks now. Is there any way to make this stop or am I just going to have to wait it out?

You'll have to wait it out.

If and when someone suppresses withdrawal bleeds like that, mid-cycle spotting or bleeding at a later time is very common.
