Title: My usual period was for 5/6 days. After having my second cesarean baby it has become very irregular with respect to number of days it persists as well as gap in between.

Question

My usual period was for 5/6 days. After having my second cesarean baby it has become very irregular with respect to number of days it persists as well as gap in between. In most months it remains more than 10 days although after 6/7 days it is like spotting once or twice a day. In this situation should I stick to my previous system of 6 days and start salaat and fasting or I will have to wait until 10 days before starting? Also we are going for this year Hajj inshaAllah. JazakaAllah.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

 

Due to your bleeding continuing more than 10 days in most months, all the days which are more than your normal period will be regarded as Istihaada. So in this situation your period will remain to 7 days. It will be Wajib for you to make Qada of your Salaat for the balance of these days.
