Very odd menstruation/spotting?

So I'll give as much background as I can. About a year and a half ago I started Daysee, which is an extended cycle birth control. About halfway into my three month pack, I started to have light spotting which lasted about four to five months straight. A few months later, I stopped taking it as I wasn't sexually active any longer and I didn't want to deal with the side effects. Anyways, about to months ago, I started Daysee again. Same as last time, about halfway in the spotting started again with just light cramps. To the main issue, and warning, it gets a little graphic: a few nights ago, I was in the bath. Since I've been spotting, I like to clean myself out with the water while in the bath to get any excess out. Well this time around, as I was pushing the water out, a rather large mass rose to the surface. Again, graphic, but as I had never seen this before, I picked it up and it did not feel at all like the normal, stringy menstrual clumps. It was quite tough and almost leathery. Ever since then my spotting has been much worse and the cramps have become substantially worse. I have a doctors appointment to renew my prescription and of course am going to bring it up then, I'd just love any ideas/insight anybody may be able to give me as to what this may be in the meantime. Thanks, ladies! :)
