Regulating my Cycle WITHOUT HBC

My period has been out of control lately. As in, over the past 3 and a half months, I've had it 6 times. And it's not short or light. It starts with heavy spotting, heavy enough that I think it's a light period. That lasts a week. Then as soon as I think it's over,  the main event shows up with cramping and heavy bleeding (35+ mL in a day) and lasts 3-5 more days. This starts all over again 2 weeks later.

I am not currently taking hormonal birth control and would prefer not to. The 3 I have tried  (ortho-evra, nuva ring and yaz) caused me to gain weight, have migraines, serious mood swings, made my boobs grow and completely killed my sex drive, so much so that until a few months ago, I thought I just didn't like sex. 

So, my question: Is there anyway to get my cycle under control without hormonal birth control? I've read a few things about inducing ovulation naturally, but that's kind of the opposite of what I'm trying to do.

I do have a history of severe endometriosis and had a pretty intense surgery about a year and a half ago. As far as I can tell pain-wise, my endo has not returned. When my endo was at it's worst, my period completely stopped. 

Thank you!
