heavy flow and blood clots during period

Home More advice Health

I'm 16 and have always had a hard time when it comes to my period. when I was 13 my period didn't stop for months and I got really bad anemia. I was put on the pill but have recently stopped cause I didn't feel the difference. I still got heavy periods with loads of blood clots. after I went off the pill I didn't get my period for 4 months. when I did get my period it was really light and easy at first but now its getting really heavy. whenever I get up after sitting down I can feel a lot of blood and a big blood clot gushing out. I feel very insecure when I'm out with my friends and hate going out because I usually need to use the bathroom every five minutes. does it have anything to do with drinking cold water or having ice cream during my period? should I go back on the pill? I'd really appreciate any advice or suggestions. thanks a lot!
