Prolonged periods, heavy periods with dark brown blood. Causes for heavy prolonged periods?

I have had a period for a prolonged length of time, a period of 11 days, with the first 3 days being particularly heavy; my usual lasts for no longer than 7 days. I had a 3 day break but now there are small traces of blood for the past 4-5 days and is still going. These traces of blood are dark in colour (brown) and I woke up this morning with little bit of red blood. What are the possible explanations of this?

Thanks for writing to us.
As you have not mentioned your age, marital status, I would suggest you to get examined by a gynaecologist. You may need to get ultrasound scan done.
Take care.
