Hi,
How are you? Prolonged menstruation may be attributed to a variety of issues such as hormone changes, birth control side effects, gynecological issues as well as presence of underlying medical conditions.  Thalassemia may also present symptoms that are usually the result of anemia and may include increased heart rate, tiring easily, dizziness, irregular or absence of menstruation. It is best that you check with your doctor for proper evaluation. Diagnostic tests such as blood tests to rule out anemia may need to be done. Take care  and do keep us posted.
