Question Can someone Help me? Continual bleeding! What is it?

Can anyone out there help me? I have had continual bleeding this past week, from Monday until today...Saturday. My period is not supposed to start until next Tuesday, which is June 3. So, I have been bleeding since May 26th. I have never had this before. I have been taking Loestrin pills for at least 3 years. I have not missed a pill recently. Also a few months ago, I all of a suddden had an intense, shocking sharp pain in my lower abdomen. It took me out for about 20 minutes. The pain was equivalent to labor pains of childbirth. Anyway, I never had that sharp pain since then.....but it was really intense.
So, does anyone know if this bleeding is normal and should I wait to make an appointment? What could it be? Thanks!
Oh....I wanted to add that I have had lots of bloating and gained about 10 pounds at my last doctors appointment...but it all seems to be in my stomach.

It would probably be a good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist. The fact that you're on birth control pills and haven't skipped any, combined with the bloating, could be indicative of something wrong. It could be as simple as uterine fibroids, but you need to have this checked out.
