Can I Pray If My Period Is Longer than Normal?

Praying during menstruation is not allowed, but what if the period lasts more than the normal days, (5-7 days). My question is whether we wait until it stops and then pray or can we pray, even though the period lasts very long?


Praise be to Allah.

A woman's menstrual cycle is subject to variations, such as being longer or shorter or discontinuous or delayed or coming earlier as a result of many biological and psychological factors.

Therefore, the woman is not allowed to perform prayer, have intercourse with her husband, etc., until she becomes totally clean, even if her period is longer than normal , unless it exceeds 15 days.

And Allah knows best.
