You need to see a GYN doctor for menorrhagia, likely due to hormonal imbalance. You probably have iron deficiency anemia.

It would be prudent to consult a gynecologist. Your doctor can prescribe pills that can limit your period to once a year. For now take oral iron and multivitamins to prevent anemia from blood loss. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health! Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines
