Irregular bleeding

Q: If a female usually menstruates for 6-7 days but this week due to reasons had an odd cycle where she took a shower on the 5 day which was Wednesday and the next day in the evening (Thursday) checked her pad and she thinks she saw brown/yellow (can’t remember for sure) but then changes her pad and that night (Thrusday) and changed it again but can’t remember if she saw nothing or the littlest bit of yellow/brown discharge. 1) When should he consider her period to be over? Which namaz did she miss for that day? Usually she has a lot more bleeding but this time since she was washing a lot in that area it was shorter cycle. 2) When should she have showered. Thursday or Friday like she normally would?


A: If she remembers seeing discharge on the sixth day, she should regard it as haidh.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
