Bleeding for 2 weeks, what's going on?

I've been bleeding since May 7th, and it is now May 19th and i have no idea what is going on. I was on NuvaRing birth control and took it out when i went to go see my OB. She told me to put it back in that night and that i wouldn't have a period that month. That was last month. I usually have my period around the 13th or 14th of every month so when i started bleeding this month i thought something was up because it's "not time yet". I took the NuvaRing out on the 17th because i thought that it might be one of the sources of what is going on. I have all the symptoms of being on my period; swollen/achey breasts, nausea, sore back, bad cramps and bloating. The only thing off and bothering me is that for the first few days it was a light flow and wasn't everyday, then it started happening everyday and it fills up at least one Kotex pantie liner everyday. The blood is usually not the bright red blood period blood usually is, it is usually dark red/brownish/grayish blood and blood clots. Yet once or twice it's been the bright red period blood. I'm scared and eager to know what is going on. Will someone please tell me what's happening??

I had this problem before, its a little tricky because it can just happen, but in my case my OB ordered an ultrasound and ultimately found out that i have polycystic ovaries... Its nothing to seriously worry about, just need to look more into it...

Yeah, my OB just recently checked if i had inflamed ovaries so i don't and i'm glad, so i shouldn't be too worried?
