Brief Answer:
Likely infection or uterine pathology

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Prolonged periods or bleeding after the periods is over can be due to:
1. Hormonal disturbances especially inadequate progesterone levels in body.
2. Hormonal disturbances leading to hyperplasia of endometrium
3. Any fibroid or pathology in uterus.
4. Pelvic inflammatory disease
Since you are also having cramps in abdomen after the periods is over along with such pattern of bleeding, the possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease or fibroids are high.
I would suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined, investigated( including ultrasound and hormonal profile) and get treated accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
