Hello Hinafatima1,

Thank you for sharing your question.

Irregular periods or not necessarily cause for alarm.  However when you have prolonged menstrual bleeding it is time to see a doctor.  It would be impossible for me to tell you the exact reason for the prolonged bleeding because there are many possibilities.

The first and most common possibility is a hormonal imbalance which is usually treated with taking oral contraceptives.  

But talk to your doctor before taking any action.
