I'm bleeding and I don't know what to do! [ragging! when I'm not supposed to be! too heavy!]

oh my god, VP, oh my god.

I know this post will probably sound REALLY SILLY coming from a 25y/o who hit puberty at 9, BUT -- I've not experienced THIS before! So, I turn to you faaaaaabulous people to help me figure out what to do.

a] I've not had a period for almost six months. I had a tubal ligation in October, stopped the pill [Microgestin Fe 1.5/30] mid-November, had a bleed starting November 23rd. That was the last I'd seen of my period until early Tuesday morning [like, 12:30am early]. The appearance of my visitor was compounded by cravings like I have never experienced -- anything chocolate and anything greasy. Particularly greasy. I even wound up making a 1:30am chocolate-and-fast-food run, which, again, never done.

b] My partner and I did have sex the "night before" my period started [that is to say, Monday night]. I'm aware that sex, particularly orgasms, can induce a period. Had that happen before. So, the fact that it started after sex is not the issue.

c] I had a number of ovarian cysts in roughly a four-week timespan, ending on April 3rd when the last one was Not Seen on a CT scan. The largest was the size of a golf ball. Ish. After the first one I went back on the Pill, same one as before. I am currently stacking and halfway through... I think my third pack? Something like that.

d] I have not seen this amount of blood [flow, whatever] in over two years. TWO YEARS. I haven't had to really wear pantiliners or even pads since I started on BC two and change years ago but now... also I've not produced enough blood to ... erm, stain the toilet water in quite some time, either.

e] I am expelling large-ish clots. Not bigger than a golf ball but definitely bigger than, say... the width of three-four quarters by two card decks. Sorry, I'm too worn out to do ~actual~ measurements, and besides I'm always crap at estimating in centimeters.

f] THE PAIN OH GOD THE PAIN. Excruciating, debilitating pain. It's a stabbing, aching, deep deep pain that is, oddly enough, only on the right side of my uterus, and for some reason also involves my right ovary. huh?

MAIN ISSUES:
I'm concerned about the amount of blood I'm producing, as well as [obviously!] the pain. I can barely make it to the bathroom right now [which is less than fifteen feet], the kitchen is just right out. Hell, I can barely SIT right now. I can't take any NSAIDs because they're Very Concerned(TM) about my GI tract. I'm out of anything stronger than tylenol and I can't drink any alcohol without risking a mad spiral of depressive doom from it messing with my med absorbtion.

I just don't know what to do. I feel like I'm going through puberty... again. And the first time was enough for me, kthx. I don't know any more when it's reasonable to go see a doctor, especially given the whole "lack of ANY period for six months!" thing. My life is being horribly impacted by this, and I shouldn't even be bleeding -- like I said, I'm in the middle of a pill pack! I haven't a clue what to do, how to deal with the pain, why the FUCK I'm cramping like I'm 12 again, etc etc.

Please, VP, you're my only hope! /starwars
