What causes long periods in peri-menopause?

My periods are ofter 2 weeks long than start again a week later. So much so that I've become anemic. I am estrogen dominant and use progesterone cream, which helps with insomnia, sadness, breast pain. Is there anything else to be done about the bleeding or do I just wait for menopause?
