Thanks for query,
First of all you should know the reason of heavy or prolonged periods.
At this age there are possibility of menopausal hormonal withdrawal or you might have some uterine fibroids cause you heavy bleeding.
So examine yourself by Gynecologist.He will ordered Ultra sound & diagnose it & prescribed you medicines.
If you do not have above possibility then he will put you on pills.
