Why does my period last for three weeks now?

A hormone produced by the ovary called "progesterone" is responsible for regulating menstrual periods. Progesterone starts periods on time and stops them usually within a five to seven day span. Progesterone is the first hormone to decrease during the perimenopause transition when the ovary stops ovulating. When this occurs irregular periods result.
