Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,if you are currently changing a pad or more in an hour or less, this requires an ER visit as this is excessive.

Also If you are feeling lightheadedness, dizziness, or tiredness, this indicates that you are most likely anemic from the bleeding and this requires an ER visit.

You should monitor your blood pressure also to see if it has dropped or not.

You should maintain a good hydration and take Gatorade.

Eat small meals at regular intervals.

If you don't have symptoms then you can wait till morning.

Otherwise see a doctor at ER.
