Welcome to ehealthforum,
Prolonged and heavy bleeding is not considered to be normal, and you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation to rule out chances of endometrial hyperplasia, uterine fibroids, hormonal derangements, thyroid hormone abnormality, bleeding disorders, anemia, etc., as causes responsible for the prolonged bleeding. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist and report any abnormal/new symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
