Heavy period after pregnancy - when to be concerned?

I had my baby three months ago. I had grade four placenta previa although that might not be relevant.
I had a period around six weeks after the birth which was extrememly heavy and I was given medication to stop the bleeding.
I have now had a period which has been going on for over two weeks - there is a lot of blood loss though I wouldn't class is as excessive ( I would normally have a four or five day period).. I'm wondering when is it going to end?? I don't want to use the medication again. I know it is probably different for every woman but i'm finding this draining. Is this normal?
