prolonged period. now 12 days and lingering brown

I am 49 years old and Every so often; maybe every 6 months; my period goes haywire.  I am pretty regular; and ritual; except when this happens.  It goes the normal period and then it lingers around for days just being brown discharge.  Enough to use a tampon and comes out majority dry. At night it gets a little red and then back to brown again.  It is not a lot of blood; just annoying.  Sometimes it I only notice it when I wipe when I go to the bathroom and it hasn't even stained my underwear.  I have had my estrogen checked and it is within the normal ranges and not into menopause yet.  i guess there is nothing I can take to subside this annoying, lingering issue of blood!???  Thank God it doesn't happen like this on a regular basis!  Any ideas???
