LARGE clots after stopping bc (levlen)

I started my period yesterday with the heaviest flow I have ever had quickly followed by clotting. Being out and about my flow maintained its heaviness and the clots became bigger. Came home showered and went to bed. Woke up all through the night feeling the mentruation. Changed my night time maxi pad twice. Then this morning passed three successive. Lots that grew larger each time. Size started small but ended up with last clot the size of my palm. I had an abortion three months prior and immediately started taking Levlen afterwards. It is suppose to help lighten your period and I pretty much didn't have one the past two months. Very little spotting. Now this is my first period off of the birth control. Is the combination of the two the potential cause for the heavy flow and clotting? Also I was blessed with hemorrhoids yesterday evening. All in all not a happy camper right now. Help?
