Irregular, Heavy Periods Affecting My Day To Day Life!

Patient : I'm a 20year old female and for the past 2 and a half years my periods have been very irregular (started them at 12) where sometimes i won't have one for about 5months. I came on last week and it was incredibly heavy. to the point i was too scared to move. it was constant and stopped me from participating in my day to day life. It wasn't painful at all, just the normal dull ache i always have. Is this something to worry about, and most importantly is there anything that can be done about it? It's affecting my life when i do come on. Thank you
