Minimum amount of time between two haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been in iddat for the last two months and what I think is due to stress I got haid just 10/11 days apart. Since this doesn’t usually happen except for the last three months, I would like to know how many days should there between haid? And does this then mean my iddat is over since this would be my third since I was divoreced?


A: The least time between two haidh is fifteen days. If blood is seen before that it will be regarded as istihaazah.

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