Alhumdulilah for this page, im always struggling with this topic.
Can I have some advice please
So in my monthly cycle, it usually starts with a little colouring (not blood) to indicate iv started then i get nothing for a day or two and then the flow.
For the past few months the time of indications of starting and the time I actually get a flow or even some bleeding in increasing.
So this month i had a little colouring on the 11th which is around the date I should come on.
The 11th was a last Friday, then i got nothing for the whole day all day saturday and Sunday absolutely nothing. Then one Monday I started to get a little and on Tuesday the flow started. Im still getting bits now, but my 10th day will be tomorrow around Zohar time, what do i do if i carry on getting some bleeding? As im thinking it will go over the 10 days because i didn’t get a flow or bleeding till towards the end on Monday.
In the name of Allah, the Inspirer of truth
From the details you have provided, the discharge you are seeing at the start of your cycle is brown. When discharge/spotting at the beginning of a cycle is not pink/red and the total bleeding exceeds 240 hours (ten days and nights), there is an allowance to discount this initial discharge.
If the discharge is pink/red, these days must be included within your menstruation (hayd). If the total time exceeds 240 hours, you must refer to your previous habit to determine which days are hayd.
And Allah knows best.
