It's always a possibility that it could be cancer but it doesn't sound like my experience.
I had irregular, VERY heavy and long periods for probably 20 years. I was told I had fibroids. I asked the doctor when I first read about PCOS if I had it, 20 years ago and he said OH sure, like it was no big deal. At one point I had such heavy periods that I thought I had cancer but My hubby heard on TV about using Cayenne capsules for heavy bleeding and I tried that and the "periods" went back to manageable. The doctor told me they weren't real periods because they would be spotting or less for a couple months then gushers of clots. he said I was building up for months on end and then when my body could no long support the weight of the blood it would break loose in a "period" like episode.
After a while I had a year or two with just spotting every six months or so, then I started spotting and it didn't go away, then it got closer and heavier til I had such heavy bleeding I couldn't leave the house without knowing where the bathroom was at every stop so i could change my pads. I was getting weak, tired, foggy thinking, unable to plan a budget or pay a bill, just laying all day Finally I Bargained with God that If I could make it to my reunion and back I would make the appt with the doctor.
and of course it was cancer, but they took out my uterus and that cancer was only a third of the way through the wall of the uterus, and only the size of a pinhead. must have been right into a blood vessel.
I was lucky, most uterine cancers are recognizable by the heavy bleeding and people go to the doctor just to have it stop, but not all I guess. an old acquaintance from our old church died of uterine cancer from all I heard.
Go to the doctor. if it's cancer, its one of the most treatable, and least threatening cancers you could get. if it's not, you'll have that load off your mind.
If it turns out to be cancer, you can private message me to talk or get my take on how to go about searching for the best cancer doc in your area, and some good online groups for support. either way, it's best not to be an ostrich, it doesn't always pay like you'd hope. LOL
