Clots is a concern: While irregular periods are quite common (we see someone with a question about it at least hourly) none have clots and that implies something other than the usual periods that requires immediate (non-ambulance) attention. This is general advice and I cannot say in your particular case how serious, but it certainly is not usual situation.
