Prolonged/irregular period after stopping Yasmin


I have tried searching online and reading forums but I am still confused of my condition. Is this normal or not?

I have been taking Yasmin for 1 year and 8 months then i stopped but i finished the pack before discontinuing..then i had 1 normal cycle after that.. then was late for 29 days.. then got my period after 29 days but the bleeding lasted for 27 days with lots of blood clots coming out whenever i check my pad..then got my period 30 days after that....and this time I'm bleeding again for almost 28 days as of today..

I went to the doctor - TSH and prolactin was uterine mass or ovarian cyst from the ultrasound.. except for increased basophil and so high eosinophils..

Should i get worried? Why am i having this heavy period? I'm so stressed of this and making me worry too much..i feel I can't get enough answer from my doctor... is there any tests i need to do?

Please i hope somebody can help me :'(

I do not know your age.Are you perimenopausal? Then age is the cause.Are you having cystic ovaries or PCOS? Then, it can be another cause.Obesity might be other reasons and there are multiple also including gross hormonal disturbances inside you. Do one thing.Meet any gynecologist.You need some in depth testing and medicines accordingly to control the cycle.
