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.

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.
