I would recommend that you see your gynecologist for this.

You will probably benefit from a course of a progesterone to help stop the bleeding

Has this been a recurring problem or is it a more isolated incident of this prolonged bleeding ?

I hope that this is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you
