Hi 3 weeks ago I switched from the contraceptive injection

Patient : Hi 3 weeks ago I switched from the contraceptive injection to the mini pill (I'm breastfeeding my 8 month old) I started spotting on the 29th march which gradually increased to a normal period. The last three days I have passed over 30 not small blood clots (around 2inch by 2inch size) I am flooding through clothes onto the sofa and having to just sit on the toilet at times as the blood loss is so much. I am very dizzy and shaky and have nearly passed out three times. I went to my doctor on the second day and he dismissed this as being a normal reaction to the contraception. As you can imagine I am very concerned as I am solely responsible for looking after my son and keep nearly passing out. Bit of background info I get a pressure pain occasionally under my navel to the left side. The past two times I've bled it has been brought on straight after intercourse and sex has become uncomfortable for me. How much longer should I leave this as the bleeding does not seem to be slowing and im feeling very ill. However with the doctor dismissing my concerns I feel foolish going back. Thanks
