Hi, as i mentioned before, you should have a "interanl" ultrasound! Your ovaries should be checked. I have chronic ovarian cysts, and they mess my periods up all the time. As of recently, i had bled for a week, had 5 days off, bleed another 8 days, had 3 days off and then bleed another 6 days!!!! I have a cyst right now!
I also have issues w/ clotting, and that is a result of endometrosis (tho, not always the case), but it is for me...this can only be dx, by surgery.
Pain, long periods, sure sounds like ovarian cysts to me. Get to the doc and get an u/s. There are many different types of cysts and some MUST come out right away and some can stay, and others can twist the ovary (had 1/3 of one ovary removed due to tortion already), so it's really not something to play with if you have not had children yet.
