Vaginal discharge

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Do girls have to perform wudhu or shower after vaginal discharge? This white colored emission has been happening before puberty. My Umm says she’s not sure in this case but it is better to perform wudhu. I do know that we have to do ghusal after periods but the white discharge emits at irregular times regularly–sometimes even when in the middle of the salaah.


A: Ghusal is not waajib. However, through the coming out of white discharge, the wudhu will break.

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