what causes a woman to have a heavy flow during their period?

I was having a heavy flow for almost 2 wks so my gyno put me on BC (Loestrin24FE) it's suppose to make my period regular and make my periods lighter and shorter. But this is my first time using this type of BC I did start my period but on the second to third day I have been having a steady flow I feel fine I am just wondering if this is ok I was expecting a lighter period.

thank you ladies for listening ;)
have a nice long weekend
