Period, spotting 1 week, period?? 2 days of pain

I've been off the pill since March 07. Since January 08, I have 2 days toward the end of my period where I am in "doubling over" type pain. I have terrible cramping (which causes diarrhea) and bloating. I pop 800 mg of Ibuprofen (prescribed by Dr.) every few hours. It helps but doesn't entirely ease the cramps.

On top of that, I've been getting my period (red flow) on the 5th of each month. Well, the red flow goes away immediately and I spot or have nothing until the 10th, where then I have a regular, albeit painful, period. So, do you think my cycle day starts on the 5th? Or would it be the 10th?

If I count it from the 5th, (when I had red flow but stopped) I would be having 10-12 day periods!

I'm so confused. Can anyone relate or have an explanation?? Doc says it's the increase in prolactin (sp?) that causes the pain. Well, I have NEVER had pain like that in my life!!
