Bleeding when on the contraceptive pill?


Q: I started taking the birth control yasmin contraceptive pill 11 days ago on day one of my period and since then have been bleeding I at first experience a normal slightly lighter period which stopped and then a day later I started to bleed again at first light but the thickness and heaviness has varied and it does not appear to be stopping, I am worride as to why this is happening as no one I've spolke to have experienced this is it due to the hormone change or is there something wrong? Also I have had sex without a condom after the 7 days of taking the pill this has worride me as I'm unsure as to whuy its happening and when it will stop? Is there something wrong?
