Irregularly long and heavy period... advise

I've been bleeding continuously for the last 16 days, heavy with a lot of clotting. I've recently had a lot happen in my life (fiance left me at Christmas and I'm in second year engineering) so I'm very stressed and emotional. I've also recently been diagnosed severely anemic and was also recently put of birth control. My bleeding problem started after i started taking the birth control.

I have a follow up appointment with the doctor with regards to the birth control this Friday (4 days from now). What I'm wondering is, should I wait till then or go to a hospital to talk to a doctor sooner. I'm starting to get concerned about the amount of blood I'm loosing but i haven't passed out or anything, though I've felt weak and dizzy at times but that comes with the anemia. Just looking to see if i should be more or less worried right now.
