Welcome to ehealthforum.
Sudden changes in period pattern and bleeding could suggest hormonal imbalances, ovarian problems, endometrial changes, thyroid dysfunction, menopausal onset etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the prolonged periods that you describe. Get started on treatment as indicated by examination findings and investigation results to help you regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
