Customer Question

I am having very heavy bleeding. I am on day seven of my "period" ( I don't know what it is, I only went four days without bleeding before I started again from my last period). I completely soak through a regular tampon in an hour and have been bleeding through a super tampon about every 2 to 3 hours. This is day four of the extremely heavy bleeding. I am feeling very shakey like I haven't eaten, bit I did eat a good sized lunch. I have been very tired the last couple days too. I cannot get into the women's clinic for two weeks. Should I go to the ER?
