I have been ill the past week and a half

Patient

Q: I have been ill the past week and a half with severe abdominal pain, and off and on vomiting/diarrhea. I have been to the ER twice, most recently on Monday. They diagnosed me with diverticulitis, gave me 2 antibiotics and Lortab, and sent me home. I had light vaginal bleeding the day before (Sunday) with small clots. At midnight today, I gushed blood and a large clot vaginally. Again at 1:15 it happened again, and my super plus tampon gushed out with it when I sat on the toilet. Then again at 2:40am another huge clot came out. I had my last period April 13-18, and have been taking fertility medicine to get pregnant. I'm not due for my until May 11th. I had a negative blood pregnancy test Monday at the ER. I also have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, though I spot between periods often, this is very excessive and worrysome. Should I get to a hospital, or wait it out? I attached a photo of the most recent clot.
