Bleeding after stopping the pill
Saturday: finished my period
Sunday: began new form of birth control pill
Monday: migrane, and other bad side effects
Tuesday: migrane
Wednesday: decided to stop the new pill-had unprotected sex with husband
Thursday: felt great
Friday: felt great
Sat: went for a 6 mile run...started bleeding that night
Sun: bleeding very heavily all day

After negative side-effects from a new form of birth control I stopped taking it three days into the pack.  My first few days off the pill were fine.  I felt great.  I went for a long run 4 days later.  That night I started bleeding very heavily and have been all throughout today as well.  I have heard of headaches, bloating, and moodiness as common side effects, but not heavy bleeding.  Is this okay?  Should I be concerned for my health?

you need to talk to a general health doctor or a gynecologist. I am not a medical doctor and can't help you with this issue

Your bleeding is due to the fact that you started birth control for three days and then you stopped.  You began feeding your body hormones and then nothing.  I doubt it's nothing more than chemical withdrawl, which feels much like a period.  You can probably expect another period in another 2 weeks or so.
