In brief: Lots of options

You will need to see your obgyn for an exam and testing.
Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iuds can minimize your periods. Lysteda is a great new hormone free drug used to stop heavy periods. If you are done with pregnancies ask if you are a candidate for an endometrial ablation.

In brief: See your doctor

This is a common pattern in your 40s; but it should be evaluated.
Likely you are ovulating at an irregular interval and causing changes in your cycle.

In brief: See a doc

It is not normal to bleed heavily for two months.
This is definitely something that should be assessed by a physician as soon as possible.
