Seeing discharge after menses

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a woman has menses or haiz for 6 days. On day 7 she sees some white discharge, assuming that her menses is over she takes Ghusl. But at night she sees a slight yellow discharge on the underwear. Will she have to perform Ghusl again in order to become paak?


A: If her previous menstrual cycle was six days and after the sixth day she had ghusal and thereafter saw some yellow discharge and she does not bleed thereafter, this yellow discharge will be regarded as haidh. She will have to repeat her ghusal and her menstrual cycle will change from six days to seven days.

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