Normally its abnormal, Now it wont stop!!

I first got my cycle when i was 11.. It went away until I was 17, never was it regular I always had abnormal periods through out my adult life, Im 30 now and up until about 3 months ago, I only had my cycle maybe 4 times a year, I was told when I was about 24 that I had polycystic ovarian syndrome, but nothing ever came from it, just an ultra sound.. Back in May, I started around the middle of the month and it lasted about a week, nothing heavy.. June it came around the same time, and it was way heavier then i have ever had it before. In the month of July I did get it but not around the same time, it came closer to the end of the month, so here we are on Aug 15 and its still going strong, lightened up, turned brown, So i was thinking okay its done, But a few days after it was full on heavy again, even today, its not as heavy but it still there and going strong.. I've had sever headaches for the past week, Im still pounding from the one that started yesterday.. I am getting worried that something is wrong, and when i go to my doctor he says its all about my weight.. I get it Im fat :P I have been a big girl all my life. anyone have any suggestions? I do feel i need a new doctor, he was the dr who birthed me, so i have been seeing him for 30 years.. not easy finding a doctor who is accepting new patients in the city i live in.. I have been doing some research, and I have been overly stressed out these past months, could that be the cause, or maybe something more serious??

Hi there I was looking on the site and came across your post. I understand how frustrating it can be to bleed and it seems like it just won't stop. I had my period when I was nine and it stared out "normal" and as I got older I went from three days to about five. By the time I was eighteen I went from those short days to long months. I knew that wasn't normal, but what was I to do?
I would start my period and right when I thought it was going to end it would just linger. Like you said: it had the look as if I was coming off, but no, pad after pad after pad. I thought something was really wrong, but when I went to the doctors they'd tell me nothing. At that point I did gain more weight I was the heaviest in my life weighing in at about 190lbs understand from a 130lbs to 197lbs is a huge change for a teen.
Still looking: searching with high hopes and praying daily for some enlightenment, just for the bleeding to stop. I started taking prenatal vitamins. Honestly doctors never told me what was wrong or what I could do to fix the situation.
I had to stop stressing about it and although its something that will make you want to pull out your hair out, you still have to make the best out of what seems to be the worse situation. You can go to the doctors and search online what could it be or do what you can now to make it better: workout, change your diet, and not think about it (I know very hard to do).
I know what worked for me may not work for you, but it couldn't hurt either prayer and a prenatal vitamin both daily that's all I did.
I hope I didn't offend you in any way and I hope that you find relief soon :)
