Irregular Bleeding Due To The Coil (Iud)

Recommended Posts

  Question:

 

A woman has a coil fitted five days into her clean days. She has been
told that she will experience bleeding due to this. It has now been 12 days
since the coil was fitted and she is still bleeding. This makes it 17 days
since purity. Her usual purity is 21days and 7 days haiz.

In this situation does she wait till 21 days and continue as istihaza for now,
or regard this bleeding to be haiz as it is more than 15 days

The placing of an intrauterine device can often lead to irregular
bleeding or spotting during the first three to six months. However, in order
for blood to be considered menstruation (hayd), it must meet the
parameters, as defined by the shariah.
 

With the information provided, we would assign seven days as
menstruation and twenty-one days as purity. The bleeding you are currently
experiencing will be applied toward your normal twenty-one days of purity, i.e.
the first five days of purity coupled with the following sixteen days. After
completing the allotted purity, you will consider the next seven days
menstruation.
 

You should continue to apply the pattern of seven days blood and
twenty-one days purity as long as you experience irregular bleeding. Should
anything change, you should consult with a scholar, as the rulings are based on
a specific set of circumstances. We also recommend keeping a detailed record of
bleeding (regular and irregular) and purity, including dates and times.

 

Lastly, the current bleeding is dysfunctional uterine bleeding (istihada),
during which you should continue to pray, with a fresh ablution for each prayer
time. You can also refer to “The Laws of Menstruation, Postnatal Bleeding &
Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding
,” for more information.

Follow up question
 

What would the case be if she now and then starts on day 22 or sometimes
gets spotting from day 18 which would have to be taken?

In our earlier answer, we asked that you apply seven days blood and
twenty-one days purity for as long as you experienced continuous bleeding. When
that is no longer the situation, the following principles will apply: the
minimum menstrual period is 3 days (72 hours); the maximum is 10 days (240
hours); and instances of menstruation must be separated by a complete purity of
15 days (360 hours).

 

Given that the number of days of menstruation and purity can vary from
month to month, any blood meeting the above-mentioned parameters will be
menstruation. Similarly, as long as a woman experiences 15 or more days of
consecutive purity, it will be considered purity.

 

So to answer your question; if one month, you experience bleeding after
18 days of purity, this will be considered menstruation as you have met the
criteria of 15 days. Similarly, if in a different month, you experience
bleeding after 22 days of purity, it will also be considered menstruation.

 

It is because of this fluctuation in the numbers, that we ask women to
keep a detailed record of bleeding and purity, including dates and times. If a
woman experiences any irregularities, that record helps us to pinpoint which
days are menstruation and which are purity.
