Default Heavy Period w/lots of clotting

Hello everyone.

I am 33 and was diagnosed about a year ago with PCOS. I have never had normal periods, ever. Durring my teens I had about 9 a year. In my 20's I would have about 4 a year, and not in my 30's I am having about 1 period a year.

I asked my obgyn to check my for PCOS 2 years ago and she stated there was no way I had PCOS. My family Dr requested she do the test last fall becasue he was suspicoius, due to a skin problem I was having. I tested positive. My obgyn gave me metformin and birthcontrol and sent me on my way. She didnt go into detail and I wasnt referred to an Endocrinologist.

Last month, after some great sex with my hubby, I noticed a very scant about of blood. I assumed it was from the fun we had had the night before. lol

This month we had sex and the day after I began, what I thought was my once a year 'normal for me' period. Day 2 of this period, I began having large blood clots and heavy bleeding. I am on day 6 and am still having extreemly heavy flow and lots of clotting. I have had a miscarriage, and the bleeding is not quite as bad as that one, but the clotting is way worse. Slight cramping, not painful enough to take tylenol.

I do take 250 mg split does of Cyclosporine daily.

I dont want any more children, 2 is perfect!

Two questions:

Should I see and Endo?

Is this clotting 'normal'?
