Abnormal vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain

I''m 37 years old, my period usually lasts for 5 days but with this cycle I''m on my 8th day, the bleeding is still heavy and is a dark ruddy colour, this is accompanied by pelvin and lower back pain.

What could be the causes of this. Should I just wait it out or should I see a doctor.

Please help.

If it was just a heavy period, it might have been okay to wait but, as you also have pain, it is probably best to see your doctor. It could be an infection or a cyst.
