    I have been on my period now for 2 months straight. Nothing painful. It started off very light and progressed and been passing clots the size of a 50 cent piece if not bigger. It is really heavy now. Having to change tampons every 30 minutes. Any Idea what is wrong with me? This doesnt seem normal to me. I've never had this happen before. Always had a 3-4 day period and not heavy.

    Since it's been going on so long and is getting heavier, a doctor's visit is probably in order. There are hormonal and non-hormonal meds to slow bleeding. Here are a couple of links that may be helpful in preparing for a discussion with your doctor -
