Title: Irregular Menses


Assalam o alaikum

My wife has IUD, her menses are very irregular, how to handle this situation. Sometimes she has spotting for 1 day and then clear discharge then this happens for around 5 days. Then she starts proper menses. 

Sometimes this situation takes around 14 days. When is it ok for her to do namaz and intercourse?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In order for us to advise, kindly inform us of her habit before the insertion of the IUD. You may email us on

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
