In brief: Are you anemic?
Depending on your age, your menstral history, and your overall health what you describe might be okay, even normal.
However, if you are fatiqued, your menstral cycles progressively getting longer and heavier, then you should go in and see your doctor. Your vital signs and a simple blood test will determine if you are anemic. If so, your doctor can help you.

If you are having LOCHIA then immediately contact your OB-you are still in your post partum period and may have remnants of placenta in the uterus which may need to be removed by D&C

In brief: Call your Dr
Are you post partum? How long ago did you deliver? If you are bleeding heavier than a period, you need to call your doctor.
