Sudden heavy period

Hello,
I am 22 and usually have only around 2 periods a year and they are very very light and I never get PMS cramps or anything like that. I have grown accustom to that and have had several doctors check out everything to see if I have cystic ovarian disorder because my sister has it and ovarian problems run in my family. Reciently though, I had lower back pain and a sudden heavy flow ( enough to go through 2-3 tampons and still overflowed).in response to this I used a tampon and a pad which didnt seem to help. I have never had this problem before and am a bit worried. I am not sexually active but do have hypothyroid problems. I hope someone has an idea of what this could be.
