It sounds to me like you may be developing a build up within the lining of your uterus.
This frequently happens when irregular periods go on for several years. Hyperplasia is the name of the condition I am referring to, and can be a pre-cancerous condition if left untreated. If you were my patient, I would definitely want to see you for an exam and ultrasound. I would also want to check you for anemia due to blood loss.
If the lining of your uterus is really thick, I might recommend an endometrial biopsy. Alternatively, I might just treat you with progesterone for 10-14 days to clean out all of the tissue. I would then probably discuss birth control pills with you, in hopes of regulating your cycle until you are ready for a family. I would probably do some other blood work such as thyroid levels, and prolactin levels too.
