Bleeding for 3 weeks?

My last period came 10 days late - I thought I was pregnant (nausea, very sore breasts, emotional, just 'felt' pregnant) but the tests were negative. But then I started spotting for 2 days, then I had extremely heavy (gushing) period for three days - extremely painful (my periods are often quite sore, but not that sore, and not that heavy).

My period seemed to stop for a few days but then I started spotting again. The spotting gradually increased and I had some very bad pains which (at first) I thought were early ovulation pains (at this point I was at 'day 10' of my cycle). But the pains have lasted a week now - they come and go - sometimes it's like really bad period cramps (doubled over in pain) sometimes it's a tight/stabbing feeling on my left side. The spotting has now increased to being like a dripping tap. So right now, I am at 'day 18' of my cycle.

Before now, my periods were very regular and always 28 days apart - would always last 5 days. I have had a copper IUD for 1 year with no problems. I would appreciate any feedback... thanks so much :-)

Had you been checked for fibroids? My sister had super heavy bleeding for weeks because of them.
