In brief: Not usual

Heavy bleeding is not typical upon starting the pill.
While it is common to have some irregular or break through bleeding or is not typically heavy. Check again with your doctor to assess the uterus for any abnormalities with an ultrasound and your blood tests for clotting problems.
