In brief: Cycle control

See a doctor and you would need a pelvic exam, ultrasound, review of all of your symptoms.
Based on the above, you may need treatment to control or reduce cycles. Your doctor may also recommend laparoscopy to rule out other causes of chronic pain and painful periods.

In brief: Lysteda or hormones

There are lots of options for heavy painful periods.
If you are still desiring pregnancy in the future ask your doctor about a nonhormone product called lysteda. It lightens the period. Other patients benefit from different birth control methods to help control the menstrual cycle. If you have your tubes tied ask if you are a candidate for an endometrial ablation.
