Praise be to Allaah.
The basic principle is that the bleeding experienced by women
is menstrual blood, so long as it does not last for more than fifteen days,
in which case it is istihaadah (non-menstrual bleeding) according to the
majority of fuqaha’. According to some scholars, it is menstrual blood
unless it continues for most of the month; if it does that, then it becomes
The menses may be longer or shorter, or it may come early or
late. The blood that comes in these cases is regarded as menstrual blood,
and there is no need to repeat the fast, according to the more correct of
the two scholarly opinions. So your usual period may be seven days, then it
increases to ten for example, so the ruling is that it is all menses.
Having a coil inserted usually causes some disruption of the
cycle, such as making the period longer, or making it come earlier, or
changing the nature of the blood.
What we understand from your question is that the bleeding
started after the coil was inserted, two days before Ramadaan, and it has
lasted until today (the seventh of Ramadaan), but you did not tell us what
your previous cycle was like, or whether the period came at the usual time
Based on this information, the bleeding you are experiencing
comes under the heading of menstrual blood, unless it lasts for more than
fifteen days, in which case you will be mustahaadah (experiencing istihaadah
or non-menstrual bleeding). [According to some scholars, you will not be
mustahaadah unless the bleeding lasts for most of a month.]
If it is established that you are mustahaadah, then one of
three scenarios must apply:
You previously had a regular cycle, so you should count on
your former cycle and refrain from prayer etc. accordingly, then do ghusl
and pray. Any bleeding outside of your normal period is istihaadah.
If you did not previously have a regular cycle, then you have
to distinguish between types of bleeding: menstrual blood is dark and thick,
and has an unpleasant odour, and is usually accompanied by pains (cramps).
The blood of istihaadah is light and thin. So your menses is the days when
the blood is dark and thick, and the other blood is istihaadah.
If you cannot make this distinction, then you should refrain
from praying for six or seven days, because that is the usual length of
women’s menses, then do ghusl and pray.
The woman who is mustahaadah may fast, pray and have
intercourse, but she must do wudoo’ for every obligatory prayer after the
time for it begins, and she may offer whatever naafil prayers she wants to
with that wudoo’.
Cases of istihaadah, with evidence, have been discussed in
the answer to question no. 68818.
And Allaah knows best.
