Gripes about heavy bleeding and hormone problems

I supposedly have pcos but am thin. There is no fat on me anywhere and I do not fit the usual description. But I want to diagnose myself and say that I have read that anovulation (which they said I have pcos, from the ultrasound showing follicular cysts on each ovary) is probably from too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. I've always had heavy periods and it has never been regular or timely for that matter. My periods are getting heavier and heavier. I do not want to leave the house. I am 21, I had my first pap test last July. I started taking yaz, I took all my active pills. I have been on birth control before. My 'fake period' would usually start on the third day. But this time it started within 24 hours. I had cramps, not really painful ones, more like never-ending discomfort is more like it. Then on my second day of bleeding it started to pick up. Could it be that my regular period is coming through and taking over? It is rearing it's ugly head and I have super heavy bleeding for two days now. I took my next first active pill last night. I hope this goes away. I have been crying. I have jury duty that I am supposed to go to tomorrow, but I am not going. I have flooding, so therefore I cannot go til I know it is all gone. I did not expect it to be like this. The cramps have gone away, but I am still worried about what is wrong with me. I swear no one else has these problems at this age. I have no health insurance anymore, I want to go to a endocrinologist, so that they can check my estrogen/progesterone levels, and do more thyroid tests. My gyno only checked my TSH levels and to check for anemia and Willebrands, which came back fine. Any advice on what I should do?
