Steady Bleeding after Switching BCM

Hi all. I just switched from a Mirena IUD to birth control pills a little over two weeks ago. I should mention with the Mirena I had very sporadic periods, sometimes going 3 months without. I wanted to switch to pills to sort of have control again, but I've been bleeding since I started the pill pack and haven't stopped! My gyno did mention I might have some breakthrough bleeding to begin with but I've been bleeding for 2+ weeks now and it's starting to get annoying. I don't know if this is normal or if I should tell my gyno?

I should also mention once the pill pack is finished I will be starting Nuva Ring. I thought I'd be ok with pills but I'm horrid at remembering to take them (I had NuvaRing before my IUD. I only had my IUD for 2 years).

So I guess my question is, is the steady bleeding normal? And when I switch back to Nuva Ring will the same thing continue?
