Is the birth control working?

Patient: Hi! Okay, first things first, I just lost my virginity on Friday and i did bleed from my hymen breaking. I would also like to mention that I am on the seasonique birth control pill and i have been on it for about 1.5 months now. We did use protection. Its been four days since I lost my virginity and I’m still bleeding. Its not really a heavy flow, it’s pretty light. I was just wondering if I could’ve gotten my period because this would be about the time that I’d normally get my period when i wasn’t on birth control. Could i still get a really light period through the seasonique? Sorry this is so long, it’s just scaring me a bit. (I have taken all my pills correctly and the same time every day)
