Irregular bleeding

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question regarding haidh. I have always been regular with my period. Every month more or less at the same time I get it. However I went for an op and I am on medication. This has left me spotting continuously. How do I work out my haidh days. Do I work on 10 days haidh and 15 clean days in between?


A: If you are bleeding or spotting continuously, then you should follow your previous menstrual cycle.

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