Hello,
You should get some blood test done like blood sugar,thyroid profile and prolactin.Irregular menses can be caused by all of these conditions.But along with that you should also get an ultrasound pelvis to rule out any pathology.You could have endometrial hyperplasia causing you to bleed longer.The endometrial thickness should be measured.I suggest and that get some tests done and then see a doctor about drugs to control the bleeding.Hormones should help there.

You should definitely get that ultrasound done.Also you will need drugs to control the bleeding.Start iron supplements if you are bleeding so much.
