I am 23 years old and the past 3 years my periods have been irregular. My last period was in June and now i have been bleeding very heavily for 2 weeks with lots and lots of very large clots. It seems to never be ending. Should i be concerned?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Very heavy bleeding with clots sounds abnormal, if your usual periods are fine. You should consider visiting your gynecologist for examination, ultrasound scan and hormonal tests to look for the underlying cause.
Get started on appropriate treatment at the earliest. Do not delay your visit to a gynecologist (not your regular family doctor).
Take care.
