Anovulatory bleeding: When the uterus receives irregular hormonal signals it can bleed continuously. You should visit your primary care or OB/Gyn for a check up and some medication. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Dr. must evaluate: On average, a period lasts 4-7 days. It is not normal for a period to last three months. You could be in danger of anemia from losing blood, so you should get this checked out by a physician as soon as possible to find the cause of the problem.

A 44-year-old male asked:
Why does my period last 2 weeks but is really dark for the 2 week?

Old blood: Given your age i suspect your Progesterone level is starting to drop meaning you are more likely to have longer periods. The lining of the uterus is less supported when the Progesterone is lower. So uou bleed longer. Blood that's been in the uterus for longer gets dark.
