Depends: If this what you always have had for a period then yes. But, if this a changing and worsening condition, then you need an exam. You could have polyps, adenomyosis, hyperplasia, and less likely cancer. If prolonged , you could develop anemia.

Not normal: That sounds like a lot of bleeding. I suggest you contact you GYN and discuss this. My concern is that you may be anemic or have large fibroids. Ask your doctor for solutions in helping decrease this amount of bleeding. And to run blood work and an ultrasound
