Stains during pregnancy
I am (BH) six weeks pregnant and I noticed some light pink discharge on colored underwear. Does this render me a Nida? If so, what are the steps I must take to become Tehora (internal bedika, time I must wait, etc.)?
Thank you for your question.
If you had no hargashah, and the only place you noticed the discharge was on colored underwear, you are not niddah (see article on stains for explanation). You should, however, consult with your physician if this continues.
