How long will she be in heat?

my male wont stop trying to hump my female, which she doesnt want, she squished herself in the corner of the cage wile i was getting my other cage ready and my male just kept humping her back. so hes staying in the extra cage for a few days but i was wondering how long my female will be in heat so i know when its safe to put them back together (and yes i checked my male to make sure there wasnt a fur ring from the humping hes fine)

Estrus normally lasts a few days give or take a day or more. Why do you have a male and female together?

He will not stop humping her, just because she gets out of heat.

If she stresses over being humped, you really should separate them permanently

I have them together cuz when their in seperate cages all they do is sit in the corner and look sad.
but thats the weird thing when i let them out to play he humps her sometimes and she just jumps around and bounces off the walls and ignores it so i was really confused by how she acted last night

Imo you should think about getting another male and female, so you can have them in same sex pairs

i had another male for a wile becuase my friend could take care of him, he played well with loki but when i tryed putting them in a cage together they would fight.
i put loki back with murry today and he hasnt tried to hump her and theyve been cuddling so i think yesterday was just a bad day or something. still going to try and save up to get him fixed soon though
