    Hi, you may be right in your assumption that your prolonged periods may be due to hormonal imbalance, but first of all we need to find the cause for this prolonged periods which is not normal. Other than hormonal imbalance there can be several other causes for this prolonged bleeding (dysfunctional uterine bleeding) like endometriosis, fibroids and polyps, medical conditions like hypertension and diabetes, medications like aspirin, steroids,IUD’s, BC pills, PID, PCOS, etc. I suggest you to do your hormonal profile, ultrasound and consult your gynecologist on these possibilities. Thanks
