Doubting when haidh starts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was feeling that I might have got discharge. I did not see because most of the time I have this feeling. Later when I checked (after 1 or 2 hours) I saw blood on my clothes.

1. When should I start counting my haidh days; the time I saw the blood or when I felt the discharge (I am not sure whether I had really got the discharge and it could have been white or red also)?


A: Since you were doubting whether anything had come out, you will count your haiz from the time you had seen the blood.

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