Thanks for your query.
You should see a gynecologist immediately.
Such heavy bleeding with clots is not normal.
It could lead to anemia, infection etc.
The first possibility is a miscarriage.
Other reasons are polycystic ovaries and endometrial hyperplasia leading to an abnormally heavy period.
Hormonal imbalance could cause build up of endometrial lining and then when it is shed off, it presents this way.
A biopsy should be done if pregnancy is ruled out.
Take care.
