heavy period clots thick red with white

I started taking Ortho-Novum 1/35 almost 5 weeks ago to get rid of my periods (even though I have had tubiligation) because I've had very painful periods and suspect endometriosis.  My plan was to take them through the placebo weeks (starting a new pack rather than taking the placebo weeks) less 3 or 4 weeks per year.  I started late on a Wed. rather than a Sun. after my period taking the pills.  I'm on the 2nd Thurs. of the 2nd pack.  I still got my period though.  It came around Fri of the 2nd week instead of on the Sunday (that would have started the placebo week had I taken the placebos or no pills that week rather than starting a new pack).  I still have it now the Thurs. following that Fri. and it keeps getting worse and tonight instead of just blood, I am having the heaviest clots I've ever had, very, very thick and wide and flat at places with a lot of clearish-white mixed into the solid pieces.  Part of it is normal bright red.  4 red clumps the size of b. control pills, but more spherical were kind of in a row.  It just looked very weird and disturbing, not like any clots I've ever gotten before and I am 36.   Any ideas on what could be wrong if anything?
