Going through a pad is less than an hour. Flu like symptoms, temperature.
I bled for 8 weeks but I was doing too much when my body needed rest. The bleeding subsided after I slowed down a bit so I could recover.
Try and relax a bit and if you have stairs then don't do laundry. Hauling clothes up and down stairs isn't good for you right now. Stress and overworking the body can contribute to bleeding lasting a bit long.
