More flow? then go!: With extremely heavy sequential periods anemia is a grave risk. Moreover, a simple answer for this kind of menses is not possible considering the pain without you going to see a GYN MD for further evaluation.

Hormonal problems: there can be hormonal problems such as low thyroid and also anatomical problems such as fibroids or polyps of ovarian cysts that can cause heavy irregular bleeding.

Would recommend that your take oral iron supplement to avoid anemia due to heavy bleeding while you wait to consult your doctor.
