In brief: Many possible causes

Prolonged menstrual bleeding can result from many possible causes.
You could have a systemic bleeding disorder (low platelets, for instance) to ovarian problems, to something going on in your uterus itself. Stress w/hormonal shifts can disrupt menstrual cycles also. Please see your family physician or gynecologist to investigate this problem -- which sounds like it's troubling you, be well.
