Tri-cyclen Birthcontrol

Patient : Hi! I delievered a baby by C-section on March 19 and I bled for 4 weeks after. On my 6 week check up I asked about birth control and my doctor prescribed me with Tri-cyclen lo but ever since I started taking I have been spotting. About 4 days ago I started bleeding very heavy, the heaviest I have ever bled and I'm not on the sugar pills so I shouldnt be having a period or bleeding at all. So why could I be bleeding like this?
