In brief: Your

Your symptoms are consistent with dysfunctional uterine bleeding (dub).
This can happen when hormones are fluctuating. You had a long time period without ovulating it appears (8 months), and are now having very heavy bleeding. However two months is a very long time and i would urge you to seek evaluation for that and have your blood level checked. Also please be sure that your pap smear is normal.
