Early bedikah as hefsek
I did a Bedikah about half an hour before sunset. It was clean, and I was waiting until it was time to do the Hefsek and Moch. I realzed about 40 minutes after sunset that I had forgotten to do the Hefsek. I did another Bedikah then and it was totally clean. Can I still begin counting the 7 days even though I forgot the Hefsek?
